Complexity is an interaction between internal and external factors. Problem-solving complexity is a function of how the problem solver interacts with the problem, determined partially by the problem solver’s experience as they interact with the problem, importance (degree to which the problem is significant and meaningful to a problem solver), and urgency (how soon the problem should be solved). The choices that problem solvers make regarding these factors determines how difficult everyday problems are to solve.

Logic problems have been the focus of considerable psychological research. However, the usefulness of that research to instructional design is limited by their lack of relevance to education or training. What Are Algorithms? One of the most common problem types encountered in schools is the algorithm. Most common in mathematics courses, students are taught to solve problems using a finite and rigid set of procedures with limited, predictive decisions.

A serious weakness of general problem-solving approaches is their underestimation of the role of domain knowledge and thus pattern recognition (analogical reasoning) which has resulted in the misrepresentation of knowledge, thereby inhibiting far transfer, which is the true purpose of education and training. Treating problem solving as a reproducible, algorithmic process has failed to focus on the highest-value learning outcomes, which is certainly part of the reason that school learning and corporate training are often perceived as irrelevant and boring.
