The conventional approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. Following only this approach to solving problems, students may tend to become used to mechanical and procedural thinking suppressing their inherent creative and innovative out-of-the-box thinking abilities. On the other hand, conceptual reasoning without firm mathematical base leads to confusion. In solving hard problems you need to strike a balance...

How to solve difficult SSC CGL algebra problems in a few steps 13

thumb_How to solve difficult SSC CGL algebra problems in a few steps 13

Usually we solve difficult Algebra problems in a few steps using basic and rich Algebra concepts and techniques together with powerful general problem solving techniques. This problem required more of deductive reasoning, enumeration, mathematical reasoning, general problem solving techniques and core algebraic concepts such as symmetry in algebraic expressions and less of algebraic expression manipulation...

Pattern recognition and use in real life problem solving

thumb pattern recognition technique

Patterns form the basis of comprehension and action for all living things in nature. Patterns are all around us - from human fingerprints, zebra crossings, warm current flows in oceans to the beautiful arrangement of a rose bud. A baby starts to recognize the objects around it, learns how to react on events or how to speak - all by identifying patterns. As we grow up, pattern recognition and its use remains to be one of the most valuable components in our problem solving ability set...
