"I recommend this book to anyone interested in furthering his or her understanding of problemsolving strategies. I would encourage those individuals to read the book, become familiar with the ten strategies, and then spend some time working through the given problems before reviewing the solutions provided because it will most likely offer some new insight and thinking into the problem." Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School "The problems presented here could be used by teachers to help their students develop problemsolving skills, by students interested in developing their own skills, or by anybody intrigued by mathematics." Mathematics Teacher This book introduces ten problemsolving 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.
