Product description

Product Description

The term problem-solving sounds scary. Who wants problems? The word problem comes from the word probe, meaning inquiry. Rather than attack a problem given to us, let us accept an invitation to inquire into and to explore an interesting opportunity. Even toddlers can excel at inquiring, exploring, and investigating the world around them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Problem solving techniques for young students 29 May 2017
By Julia B. - Published on
Avoid Hard Work! is a new book by an amazing math educator Jim Tanton, author of Solve This! and a dozen of other math education books. This book teaches problem solving techniques to young children ( and their parents!). My favorite part is the first one of the " steps to solution" he suggests: " Have an emotional reaction to the problem. Grr, how can I ever count all the possible configurations?!"
After sufficient amount of grumbling and moaning, glance at the next step - and you may eventually get to the solution, even if it seemed completely impossible at first.
