I am going to make up an example with the verb, to entangle.
(ex) Mr. Brown encourages his students to apply their math skills in multiple ways. The students who solve math problems by different methods have excellent analytical skills and earn high marks. In contrast, those who are too entangled in only one problem-solving strategy lack strong reasoning skills.
Here, I want to express the fact that such students get caught or stuck all the time in one problem-solving method. Does the verb fit the context? Thanks a lot.
