The following article presents a number of key concepts for successful math problem solving.
From the introduction:
“This paper describes a method for solving math problems.The basic idea is to combine two things:
- First, a simple method for making handwritten notes while thinking about a problem.This method is aimed at supporting
– a step-by-step approach to problem solving and
– reﬂective thinking: Better understand and control what you do while solving a problem.
- Second, a densely packed cheat sheet with broad advice on math problem solving. At present, this sheet focuses on general methods for problem solving. Later versions may contain material on speciﬁc domains like calculus or algebra.
