Problem-Solving Strategies for Efficient and Elegant Solutions, Grades 6-12 by Alfred S. Posamentier

Book Description

This updated edition presents ten strategies that are effective tools for teaching students how to solve problems, both in mathematics and in real-life situations. The authors demonstrate how the strategies can be used to solve a wide range of problems and provide about 200 examples that illustrate how teachers can include these techniques in their mathematics curriculum. In many cases, the methods presented make the solution of a problem easier, neater, and more understandableA'and thereby more enjoyable. This new edition includes references to current standards, revisions and clarifications throughout the text, and a number of new problems that can be used to teach the different strategies.
