Problem Solving

The Creative Side of Mathematics

problem-solving
Derek Holton

Written in a chatty, accessible style, the author suggests different approaches to the solutions of a number of familiar (and not so familiar) problems. Boy frogs swapping places on lily-pads with girl frogs, the patterns made when rolling a square around a square, problems using chess boards, coins and just plain numbers…each problem developing into a conjecture and then a generalization. Readers are encouraged to leave the text to do their own thinking and then return either in triumph or frustration!
Accessible to most secondary students with a knowledge of number and some basic logic skills—and noting that little bit of algebra is also helpful—this book provides lots of opportunities for problem solving and reasoning.
