Problem-Solving Strategies for Efficient and Elegant Solutions, Grades 6-12 A Resource for the Mathematics Teacher

by Alfred S. Posamentier, Stephen Krulik

Problem-Solving Strategies for Efficient and Elegant Solutions, Grades 6-12 A Resource for the Mathematics Teacher Synopsis

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 understandable-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.

Problem-Solving Strategies for Efficient and Elegant Solutions, Grades 6-12 A Resource for the Mathematics Teacher Press Reviews

Each chapter covers a different strategy and includes problems that could be solved using that strategy. This would be a great resource for any secondary mathematics teacher and a wonderful resource for the mathematics teacher educator. -- MAA Reviews, July 2008 This terrific resource helps both new and veteran teachers better understand the nature of problem solving as a critical mathematics process. In very simple terms, the authors present and illuminate the strategies that are the backbone of mathematics instruction.
