resolution

The fourth and final phase of Masters and Johnson’s four-stage model of physiological responses to sexual stimulation, which follows orgasm, and is characterised by muscle relaxation, reduced heart rate and vasodilation. For most males, and some females, this is accompanied by the refractory period, in which further orgasm is physiologically impossible.

resolution

the minimum distance between two points at which they can be seen as such rather than as a single point. With the light microscope this is approximately half the wavelength of light used in illumination. Only with a shorter wavelength can greater resolution be achieved, as in the ELECTRON MICROSCOPE which gives a resolution of about 0.5 nm.

Similarly, Kim (2005:9) pointed out: "traditionally learning has been thought to be nothing but a repetitive activity" Nonetheless, Xiuping (2002) also argued that problem solving could not be used all the time and in every aspect of the teaching process, because time is limited and the amount of materials the students should learn is very huge.
Moreover, Mathematical problem solving is often linked with novelty (Kohler, 1925) and Polya is also credited problem solving with innovation.
