“This is a wonderful book, filled with problems and witty solutions, addressed to anyone interested in problem-solving. Elementary mathematics is used so that the reader can focus on the strategy. The reader will enjoy reading this book and trying to find their own strategies to arrive at the solution of the problems proposed.”— European Mathematical Society
This book introduces ten problem-solving strategies by first presenting the strategy and then applying it to problems in elementary mathematics. In doing so, first the common approach is shown, and then a more elegant strategy is provided. Elementary mathematics is used so that the reader can focus on the strategy and not be distracted by some more sophisticated mathematics.
