Art Of Problem Solving Prealgebra Anthony Vidler The Architectural Uncanny Essays
It was actually their Prealgebra book that got me hooked on their approach, and it sure seems the more of their books I work through the more I love what they do.
Though the approach is great, the icing on the cake is the collection of problems.
That allows you to verify your solutions and also learn a lot more by reading solutions that might approach the problems in different ways than you did.
Here’s us doing a quick review of the problem itself tonight: The Art of Problem Solving problems are so great to begin with and it is sort of doubly fun to be able to use them as stepping stones to show some more advanced geometry.
To get the most out of an Ao PS book (or pretty much any other math book), do the problems. Do the exercises at the end of each section, and the review and challenge problems at the end of each chapter.
There are a lot of problems, and some of them are quite difficult, so you should not expect to be able to solve every single one of them.
Ao PS Track: The Ao PS track is built for the exceptional mathematics student who is both capable and interested in exploring and executing the Mathematics curriculum from the perspective of depth.
The Ao PS approach favors very, very deep analytical approaches to topics in Mathematics, sometimes moving more slowly than Honors because of the depth of analysis expected from the student.
Our students are not just highly skilled, but also demonstrate enthusiasm and clear understanding.
