Notes

1.   The resources on this page are are organized by a classification scheme developed exclusively for Cosma.

2.   Of course, most disciplines have evolved highly specific processes (e.g. scientific method, engineering process, writing process etc.). This is one of the many reasons that “process” is treated as a “knowledge form” within Cosma. Problem solving is presented here on this page to serve as a generalizable and useful example of a process.
