View all copies of this ISBN edition:

One of life's most exhilarating experiences is the ""aha!"" moment that comes from pondering a mathematical problem and then seeing the way to an elegant solution. And many problems can be solved relatively quickly with the right strategy. In 24 mind-enriching lectures, this course conducts you through scores of problems - at all levels of difficulty - under the inspiring guidance of award-winning Professor Paul Zeitz of the University of San Francisco, a former champion ""mathlete"" in national and international math competitions. For those in high school or college, this course serves as an enriching mathematical experience, equal to anything available in the top schools. Professor Zeitz is a masterful coach of math teams at every level of competition, from beginners through international champions, and he knows how to inspire, encourage, and instruct. Professor Zeitz compares this systematic approach to problem solving - in which you deploy strategies, tactics, and tools - to the mountaineer's quest to reach the top of a high peak. The mountain may seem insurmountable, but there is always a way to conquer it by proceeding one step at a time. Looking at an impressive mountain, you can't but feel a sense of awe at the prospect of climbing it. Math problems, too, can produce this same reaction. But don't be daunted: You are more ready than you think.
