Patricia Stokes (1987) writes, "Pat Stokes (PhD, Psychology) just published her second book on creativity.
The title is Creativity from Constraints in the Performing Arts. It is based on the paired constraint/problem solving model presented in her first book (Creativity from Constraints: The Psychology of Breakthrough). The model is also the basis of her highly successful early math program now in kindergarten through 3rd grade in a public grammar school in Lodi, NJ. The program is called Only the NUMBERS Count. It uses the Asian count (in which 11 is called ten-one, and 21 is called two-ten-one), and a pair of manipulatives (one for making addition combinations in K and 1st grade, the other for learning multiplication, division, and fractions simultaneously in 2nd and 3rd grades).
