Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Crossing the River with Dogs: Problem Solving for College Students, 2nd edition promotes the philosophy that students learn best by working in groups and the skills required for real workplace problem solving are those skills of collaboration. The text aims to improve students writing, oral communication, and collaboration skills while teaching mathematical problem-solving strategies.  

Focusing entirely on problem solving and using issues relevant to college students for examples, the authors continue their approach of explaining classic as well as non-traditional strategies through dialogs among fictitious students.  This text is appropriate for a problem solving, quantitative reasoning, liberal arts mathematics, mathematics for elementary teachers, or developmental mathematics course.

Synopsis:
