Problem Solving and Problem Abstraction
People spend a great deal of time solving problems, often without consciously thinking about them. For example, when you go grocery shopping, you may encounter and solve a number of problems without paying attention to them. You might be looking for cream of asparagus soup. You have techniques that you use to find this particular flavor of soup. You probably don’t look for it among the frozen pizzas. You may ask someone where it can be found to narrow your search. You might ask, “Where is the cream of asparagus soup?” and be told, “The soups are on aisle four,” in which case you would go there and search among the soups. You probably wouldn’t respond with, “That’s fine, but I want to know where the cream of asparagus soup is!”
