Summary: You' ve got a lot of problems. That's a good thing. Across the country, people are joining math clubs, entering math contests, and training to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad. What's the attraction? It's simple--solving mathematical problems is exhilarating! This new edition from a self-described "missionary for the problem solving culture" introduces you to the beauty and rewards of mathematical p...roblem solving. Without requiring a deep background in math, it arms you with strategies and tactics for a no-holds-barred investigation of whatever mathematical problem you want to solve. You'll learn how to: get started and orient yourself in any problem. draw pictures and use other creative techniques to look at the problem in a new light. successfully employ proven techniques, including The Pigeonhole Principle, The Extreme Principle, and more. tap into the knowledge gained from folklore problems (such as Conway's Checker problem). tackle problems in geometry, calculus, algebra, combinatorics, and number theory. Whether you're training for the Mathematical Olympiad or you just enjoy mathematical problems, this book can help you become a master problem-solver!
