Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Within each chapter, three well-chosen examples illustrate a variety of problem-solving strategies and applications of concepts. The examples are followed by ten exercises, graduated in difficulty so that nearly every student reader will be able to solve at least one problem easily and nearly every reader will struggle with at least one. The thoughtful choice of examples and exercises is one of the book's strengths, providing a wealth of opportunity for students to become experienced problem solvers within a remarkably small number of pages.' David Wells, Penn State University

'Professor Faires has prepared an impressive problem solving primer. The book presents a wide variety of problems and problem solving strategies, and illustrates how the American Mathematics Competitions can be used to develop many important mathematical techniques.' Richard Gibbs, Fort Lewis College

Présentation de l'éditeur

A major aspect of mathematical training and its benefit to society is the ability to use logic to solve problems. The American Mathematics Competitions have been given for more than fifty years to millions of students. This book considers the basic ideas behind the solutions to the majority of these problems, and presents examples and exercises from past exams to illustrate the concepts. Anyone preparing for the Mathematical Olympiads will find many useful ideas here, but people generally interested in logical problem solving should also find the problems and their solutions stimulating. The book can be used either for self-study or as topic-oriented material and samples of problems for practice exams. Useful reading for anyone who enjoys solving mathematical problems, and equally valuable for educators or parents who have children with mathematical interest and ability.

HASH(0x9a437a14) étoiles sur 5 A great buy, it is worth every dollar 30 octobre 2008

This book is a great book. This book starts at the beginning (in this case proportions) in very easy format to follow and easy to understand. As they come with practice AMC 10 and 12 problems they will hone your understanding of the material. This book is great for beginners a great companionship for those who have Art of Problem Solving by Richard Ruscyzk.

top marks!

HASH(0x9a437a68) étoiles sur 5 What a great book! 30 juillet 2007
Par Farida Akhter - Publié sur Amazon.com

I read this book just two weeks before the American Mathematics Contests this year as a freshman. I had never heard of these contests, but reading this book gave me everything I need to know! With its help, I qualified for the AIME (though missed the USA math olympiad by 1 question!). If you are into math contests, trust me, this will significantly raise your score.

HASH(0x9a437ea0) étoiles sur 5 As it says: First Steps 22 mars 2009

This is a good source to start a serious training for mathematical competitions, but as it says, it gives you the first step. Should be enough for those who just look to improve their AMC scores significantly, but not so useful for those thinking or wanting to participate on IMO, APMO or similar competition.

For the level it has, I feel it is somewhat overpriced, but besides that, it's a good book.

HASH(0x9a437e88) étoiles sur 5 Too Shallow 2 juillet 2014
Par Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is disappointing. Mainly, the problems seem more like tests of understanding, than means of applying understanding to genuinely interesting results. Frequently, Olympiad problems are of the latter. As the reader will likely know, Olympiad problems can have their origin in real mathematics; very few of the problems here are of this type. Due to this, I believe there is some deception in the title. The reader will get to see very little of the creativity and ingenuity that is a necessity for doing well in Olympiad settings.

My recommendation would be to start with Paul Zeitz's, tAaCoPS and graduate to one of the books in the Springer "Problem Books in Mathematics" series. If these are too difficult one could start with Polya's Mathematics and Plausible Reasoning, vol. I. Also, there are a number of subject specific texts that are excellent despite the narrowed focus.
