How To Solve It by mathematician George Polya presents both insights into the discipline of heuristic reasoning as well as the means for teaching such reasoning to students. Join Maria Lorenz (math) and Matthew Newby (physics) as we discuss this classic text and wrestle with how best help our students to become disciplined problem solvers.
Guest Facilitators: Maria Lorenz, Professor, Mathematics, CST; Matthew Newby, Assistant Professor, Physics, CST.
