Current research on problem based tasks in the mathematics classroom and the effects are examined. As well educators are provided with an analysis regarding the importance of teaching students to problem solve through the use of novel problems, as well as equip them with the know-how to implement a problem-based unit in their classrooms. A sample unit plan and fifteen novel problems and their solutions appropriate for Algebra I students are also provided. Keywords: problem-solving, attitude, algebra
