Summary

The purpose of this book is to teach the basic principles of problem solving, including both mathematical and nonmathematical problems. This book will help students to ...

  • translate verbal discussions into analytical data.
  • learn problem-solving methods for attacking collections of analytical questions or data.
  • build a personal arsenal of internalized problem-solving techniques and solutions.
  • become "armed problem solvers", ready to do battle with a variety of puzzles in different areas of life.
  • Taking a direct and practical approach to the subject matter, Krantz's book stands apart from others like it in that it incorporates exercises throughout the text. After many solved problems are given, a "Challenge Problem" is presented. Additional problems are included for readers to tackle at the end of each chapter. There are more than 350 problems in all. A Solutions Manual to most end-of-chapter exercises is available.
