Appealing to everyone from independent learners to college-level majors, Paul Zeitz’s The Art and Craft of Problem Solving 3rd Edition PDF introduces a problem-solving approach to mathematics, as opposed to the traditional exercises approach. The goal of The Art and Craft of Problem Solving 3e is to develop very strong problem solving skills, which it achieves by encouraging mathematics students to DO math rather than just study it. Zeitz draws upon his vast experience as a coach for the international Math Olympiad to give all math students an enhanced sense of mathematics and the ability to investigate and solve complex problems.


From the Back Cover

You’ve got a lot of problems. That’s a good thing.

Across the country, many people are entering math contests, joining mathematics clubs, and training to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Why? It’s simple—solving mathematical problems is exhilarating!

This latest new 3rd edition from a self-described “missionary for the problem solving culture” introduces you to the beauty and rewards of math problem solving. Without requiring a deep background in mathematics, it arms you with tactics and strategies for a no-holds-barred investigation of whatever math problems you want to solve. You will learn how to:

  • get started and orient yourself in any problem.
  • tap into the knowledge gained from folklore problems (such as Conway’s Checker problem).
  • successfully employ proven techniques, including The Extreme Principle, The Pigeonhole Principle, and more.
  • tackle problems in combinatorics geometry, algebra, calculus, and number theory.
  • draw pictures and use other creative techniques to look at the problem in a new light.

Whether you’re training for the Mathematical Olympiad or you just enjoy math problems, this PDF etextbook can help you become a master problem-solver!
