This paper discusses the Representational Theory of Mind (RTM), which defines intentional mental states as related to mental representations and explains the intentionality of this association. In particular, the paper investigates the idea that language is an avenue by which RTM may be understood to be a symbolic representation of thought. The paper underscores the importance of attention and consistency in the student's learning process.

From the Paper:

"On the issue of problem solving impulsion is not a key ingredient of the step. Problem solving is based on logic. Verbal math problems at the end of chapters I very easily understood and excelled. I have great understanding of step-by-step problems and this proves itself helpful in my sporting activities as well as education since the consequences of actions are so easily foreseeable and the results of the actions are clearly defined."
