Reviews - What do customers think about Crossing the River with Dogs: Problem Solving for College Students?

Worth every cent  Sep 22, 2008
I am a first year teacher, teaching high school math topics (Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calc, etc) and I find the problems in this book to be amazing! I have a study skills class that is required for all 10th graders. The classes have students who are in Pre-Algebra up to students taking Algebra 2 honors. I find the problems in this book to be an even playing field for all levels! The problems require the students to think and problem solve using various strategies explained throughout the book.

I've recommended it to every teacher I know, and they've all agreed that this book is a must have! No matter what you teach, you can always find a handful of problems that will have the students becoming more advanced problem solvers.

Great text!  Sep 17, 2007
This book is a great text book. My professor loves it and I really like it too. The way it makes you think is so different than other concepts in the math realm. This book makes you think and I recommed incorporating Sodoku puzzles into your curriculum if you teach a problem solving class. I'm only a student, but they really make you think.
Rehash  May 17, 2007
This is identical to ISBN 1559533706, Problem Solving Strategies. The authors have repackaged it with a new cover. There is no new material covered in this book.
