The Art of Problem Posing, Second Edition by Stephen I. Brown,Marion I. Walter

By Stephen I. Brown,Marion I. Walter

up to date and improved, this moment variation satisfies an identical philosophical goal because the first -- to teach the significance of challenge posing. even if curiosity in mathematical challenge fixing elevated in past times decade, challenge posing remained rather missed. The paintings of challenge Posing attracts awareness to this both vital act and is the innovator within the field.

Special good points include:

* an exploration ofthe logical dating among challenge posing and challenge solving

* a unique bankruptcy dedicated to instructing challenge posing as a separate course

* sketches, drawings, diagrams, and cartoons that illustrate the schemes proposed

* a distinct part on writing in mathematics
