George Polya was a Hungarian mathematician. Born in Budapest on 13 December 1887, his original name was Pólya Györg. The book is very readable and charming, helpful to students in understanding the problem solving process, and includes a variety of problems ranging from easy to quite difficult that should challenge all high school and college, as well as beginning grad students in math.

It shows how to think about a problem, how to look at special cases, and how to devise an effective strategy to attack and solve the problem. Covers arithemetic, algebra, geometry, and some elementary combinatorics. Includes an updated bibliography and newly expanded index.

It provides context for students to experience working with the new concepts before they are formally defined and manipulated procedurally, thus making definitions and procedures meaningful to them. What are the characteristics of a TtPS? main learning activity is problem solving. concepts are learned in the context of solving a problem. students think about math ideas without having the ideas pre-explained

**A unique, heuristic approach to mathematical discovery and problem solving**

This combined edition of *Mathematical Discovery: On Understanding, Learning and Teaching Problem Solving* is unique among mathematics texts. Espousing a heuristic approach to mathematical problem solving, the text may be followed sequentially or according to instructors' individualized curricula. Beginning with a discussion of patterns and practical approaches to problem solving, the book then presents examples from various branches of math and science to help students discover how to solve problems on their own – an invaluable skill for the classroom and beyond.
