Analogical and Selective Thinking in Science: The Use of the Selective Problem Solving in Science Courses

Abidin Kılıç, M. Bahadır Ayas.

Abstract
Problem solving can be considered as an inte-gral part of our everyday life. Some of the solu-tions produced to the problems can be evalu-ated in the context of creativity in terms of being unique, novel and inspiring new ideas, whereas others are ordinary. In fact, according to some researchers, creativity is defined as problem solving process. Along with many problem-solving approaches, the use of analogies that re-sult in inventions or discoveries in areas such as science and mathematics, is a frequently used method. In this study, Selective Problem Solv-ing (SPS) model, a creative problem-solving model developed by Sak (2011), was examined in detail and applied the science. SPS is a prob-lem-solving model developed to help students to improve their creative problem-solving skills and to provide transferable knowledge to dif-ferent problem situations. The model focuses on analogical thinking and selective thinking skills. The theoretical background of SPS model is based on Polya's (1957) problem solving model, Davidson and Sternberg’s (1984) in-sightful thinking model and research findings in the field of creativity.

Key words: Analogical thinking, selective think-ing, selective problem solving, creative problem solving
