( This teaching method does have a useful purpose but it should not be all that mathematics is about. )

A question is a problem if the procedure or method of solution is not immediately known to you but requires you to apply creativity and previous knowledge in new and unfamiliar situations. In a problem, you are not aware of any algorithm that will guarantee a solution.

“To have a problem means to search consciously for some action appropriate to attain some clearly conceived but not immediately attainable aim. To solve a problem means to find such an action.” (George Polya)
