This text on mathematical problem solving provides a comprehensive outline of "problemsolving-ology," concentrating on strategy and tactics. It discusses a number of standard mathematical subjects such as combinatorics and calculus from a problem solver's perspective.About the Author:
About the Author Paul Zeitz studied history at Harvard and received a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley. He taught high school math in San Francisco and Colorado and currently is an associate professor at the University of San Francisco. He won the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) and was a member of the first American team to participate in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) in 1974. Since 1985, he has composed and edited problems for several national math contests, including the USAMO. He has helped train several American IMO teams, most notably the 1994 "Dream Team" which, for the first time in history, achieved a perfect score.

" This is the only book I know that can be used as a source of problems (as opposed to exercises), provides strategies and intuition into problem solving, and also provides tools and techniques for solving problems. The integration of these three areas is extremely distinctive and highly commendable." Jeffery Bergen, DePaul University In many ways, solving a mathematical problem is as challenging and exhilarating as reaching the peak of a majestic mountain. Like the climber, the problem solver sets out on a journey where getting lost and finding one' s way are part of the fun. The solution may be elusive, but creative investigation and an adventurous spirit often bring it within grasp. The challenge is waiting for you inside this exciting text!.
