Designed for high-school scholars and lecturers with an curiosity in mathematical problem-solving, this stimulating assortment contains greater than three hundred difficulties which are "off the overwhelmed direction" — i.e., difficulties that supply a brand new twist to everyday subject matters that introduce surprising themes. With few exceptions, their answer calls for little greater than a few wisdom of user-friendly algebra, notwithstanding a touch of ingenuity can help.
Readers will locate right here thought-provoking posers concerning equations and inequalities, diophantine equations, quantity idea, quadratic equations, logarithms, combos and likelihood, and masses extra. the issues variety from particularly effortless to tough, and lots of have extensions or diversifications the writer calls "challenges."
By learning those nonroutine difficulties, scholars won't purely stimulate and increase problem-solving abilities, they'll collect priceless underpinnings for extra complicated paintings in mathematics.
