Okamoto, H., Hartmann, M. & Kawasaki, T. (2023). Analysis of the Relationship between Creativity in Fermi Problems Measured by Applying Information Theory, Creativity in Psychology, and Mathematical Creativity. , Education Sciences, 2023(13(3)).


Many educational institutions demand the development of creativity. However, it is still insufficient for encouraging creative work or thinking. One reason is the lack of simple tools to measure creativity in schools. This study focused on Fermi problems to solve the reason for this issue. Fermi problems have been suggested to be deeply related to creativity. However, few empirical studies have been conducted on their relationship. Therefore, this study conducted a survey and analyzed them by structural equation modeling. The results showed a moderate correlation between creativity in Fermi problems and creativity in psychology (r = 0.47, p < 0.01). Additionally, it was shown that there is a strong correlation between creativity in Fermi problems and mathematical creativity (r = 0.76, p < 0.01). Furthermore, regression analysis showed that creativity in Fermi problems is an important factor for measuring creativity in psychology and mathematical creativity.
