Description Problem-solving studies in mathematics PDF

It's a mathematical textbook focused on applying problem solving principles to plenty of creative exercises. Over the years, a number of books have been written on the theory of func-tional equations. However, few books have been published on solving func-tional equations which arise in mathematics competitions and mathematical problem solving.

The intention of this book is to go some distance towards filling this gap. In this book, the term problem solving includes posing and solving problems, posing and accomplishing tasks, posing and answering questions, and posing and making decisions.
