9780132454810: Effective Problem Solving (2nd Edition)

  For freshman through senior-level courses on Critical Thinking, Cognition, or Problem Solving.

  • This brief survey of creative problem solving offers a collection of specific, practical procedures that one should use for various classes of problems – ranging from machines that need repairing, to mathematical puzzles, engineering problems, poorly defined industrial problems, comprehending lectures and reading, remembering information, invention, and difficulties between people.
  • The principles – which are based on research and theory in cognitive psychology – are applied to problems in daily living and focus on how to overcome one's own limitations in trying to solve a problem. Students thus learn principles for dealing with problems as well as what it is about themselves that can make the problem more or less difficult.

From the Back Cover:

This brief survey of problem solving applies a series of prescriptive principles to a wide range of domains, including appliance repair, mathematics, logic puzzles, reading comprehension, remembering, invention, and interpersonal problems. The sheer breadth of application makes this an uncommon text.
