Resource Activation Patterns In Expert Problem Solving 

written by Darrick C. Jones, Marina Malysheva, AJ Richards, Gorazd Planinšic, and Eugenia Etkina

This paper describes the analysis of video recordings of physics experts solving novel problems involving solar cells, which involved such advanced physics topics as complex circuits and semiconductors. By performing a fine grained analysis using a resource based model of cognition, we determined what resources experts use while reasoning in the current context and how they used them. By analyzing critical events in the problem solving process, we searched for meaningful patterns of resource activation to help gain insight into expert problem solving processes.
