> Thinking Mathematically 2nd Editio
A revamped classic.
How can you develop your powers to think deeply about mathematics? The impeccably credentialled authors believe that when tackling mathematical problems “…being stuck is an honourable state and an essential part of improving thinking.” Originally published more than 30 years ago, the text has been updated with 77 fresh problems which intrigue and challenge, suitable for senior secondary students, pre-service teachers and/or undergraduates.
Thought processes and problem solving techniques are examined and explained: specialising and generalising, phases of work, responses to being stuck, conjecturing, justifying and convincing. This is a book to be used, not read. Challenge yourself!
