Schemas in Problem Solving $162.99 Schemas are major knowledge structures influencing the way people acquire and store information. Sandra Marshall explores a new theory of schema development and studies the applicability of the theory as a unified basis for understanding learning, instruction, and assessment. The theory’s prescriptions for teaching are direct, and its application to assessment suggests new directions for tests. After examining the roots of the theory in earlier work by philosophers and psychologists, the author illustrates the main features of her theory with experimental evidence from students who are learning to recognize and solve arithmetic story problems. She describes individual performance with traditional empirical studies as well as computer simulation. The computer simulation reflects a new approach in modeling cognition. Marshall’s model links neural networks with symbolic systems to form a hybrid model that uses pattern matching of sets of features as well as logical stepbystep rules. Educational researchers and psychologists as well as curriculum developers will be interested in the new approaches of this work. 

Climate Management: Solving the Problem $3.95 Climate Management focuses on changing human behavior as the first step toward a positive management system that will benefit current society and those to come. This new fullcolor resource explores human psychology and how cultural value systems, politics, and news dissemination affect people’s opinions, thereby driving public response. Informing readers on how global warming affects national security and terrorism and why its progression is a very real threat to everyone’s future, this accessible resource presents various conservation programs that have been developed and looks at what is and isn’t working. Climate Management also outlines the importance of public education and the role it plays in the future. 

Problem Solving for Results $3.95 Turbulence is not new to the business world. In fact, the turbulence is increasing and managers are seeing teams spinning their wheels. But now there is a book that addresses these realitiesProblem Solving for Results. Management systems are in a state of crisis and operations are more complex. The old topdown operations mode no longer suffices. Today’s businesses demand speed and increased accuracy, forcing everyone to reevaluate chains of command and tear down the walls between functions. Amid the responsibilities of traditional management lies problem solving. The push is toward moving decisionmaking authority down the ladder to all levels. Managers are no longer equipped to or capable of making the number and variety of necessary decisions in a vacuum. The current mode is to have employees deal directly with workplace issues and take corrective action without complaint and without management involvement. Coping with this reality and preparation for these improvements in workplace problem solving requires interest and motivation. Problem Solving for Results can facilitate this by demystifying and simplifying the process. This book bridges philosophy and theory and puts together a practical integration of all the tools necessary to get results from your investment of time, energy, and money. 

Ergonomics Guidelines and Problem Solving $149.73 There is an urgent need to disseminate ergonomics "knowhow" to the work place. This book meets that need by providing clear guidelines and problem solving recommendations to assist the practitioner in decisions that directly protect the health, safety and wellbeing of the worker. The guidelines have evolved from a series of symposia on "Ergonomic Guidelines and Problem Solving." Initially experts in each area selected were asked to write draft guidelines. These guidelines were circulated to participants at the symposia and to other experts for review before being comprehensively revised. In some instances these guidelines cannot be considered complete but it is important now to put some recommendations forward as guidelines. It is hoped that as new research emerges each guideline will be updated. Each guideline has been divided into two parts. Part I contains the guidelines for the practitioner and Part II provides the scientific basis or the knowledge for the guide. Such separation of the applied and theoretical content was designed to facilitate rapid incorporation of the guide into practice. The target audience for this book is the practitioner. The practitioner may be a manager, production system designer, shop supervisor, occupational health and safety professional, union representative, labor inspector or production engineer. For each of the guidelines, relevant practitioners are described. Topics covered include work space design, tool design, workrest schedules, illumination and maintenance. 

Problem Solving and Programming Concepts $134.46 "Problem Solving and Programming Concepts, 9/e, " is a core or supplementary text for onesemester, freshman/sophomorelevel introductory courses taken by programming majors in Problem Solving for Programmers, Problem Solving for Applications, any Computer Language Course, or Introduction to Programming. Revised to reflect the most current issues in the programming industry, this widely adopted text emphasizes that problem solving is the same in "all" computer languages, regardless of syntax. Sprankle and Hubbard use a generic, nonlanguagespecific approach to present the tools and concepts required when using any programming language to develop computer applications. Designed for students with little or no computer experience — but useful to programmers at any level — the text provides stepbystep progression and consistent indepth coverage of topics, with detailed explanations and many illustrations.

Affect and Mathematical Problem Solving $69.95 Research on cognitive aspects of mathematical problem solving has made great progress in recent years, but the relationship of affective factors to problemsolving performance has been a neglected research area. The purpose of Affect and Mathematical Problem Solving: A New Perspective is to show how the theories and methods of cognitive science can be extended to include the role of affect in mathematical problem solving. The book presents Mandler’s theory of emotion and explores its implications for the learning and teaching of mathematical problem solving. Also, leading researchers from mathematics, education, and psychology report how they have integrated affect into their own cognitive research. The studies focus on metacognitive processes, aesthetic influences on expert problem solvers, teacher decisionmaking, technology and teaching problem solving, and beliefs about mathematics. The results suggest how emotional factors like anxiety, frustration, joy, and satisfaction can help or hinder performance in problem solving. 

Problem Solving with Fortran 90 $99 This book provides students with an introduction to Fortran 90, one of the most powerful and flexible programming languages for scientific computation available today. The author shows how using computers and Fortran 90 it is possible to tackle and solve a wide range of problems as they might be encountered in engineering or in the physical sciences. Following a brief introduction to computing in general, the author presents a thorough guide to problemsolving and algorithm design using pseudocode to develop an understanding of the steps that need to be taken to solve a particular problem. Subsequent chapters introduce the main features of Fortran 90 motivated by particular ideas and tasks that are typically found in science and engineering courses. Each chapter includes at least two complete programming applications which become progressively more challenging as the book develops. As a result, readers are encouraged to develop a sound understanding both of programming in Fortran 90 and of the invaluable tool it offers for addressing complex science and engineering problems. Students coming to computing for the first time will find the wide range of problems both accessible and relevant to their other studies.

Mathematics as Problem Solving $54.37 Retelling the best solutions and sharing the secrets of discovery are part of the process of teaching problem solving. Ideally, this process is characterized by mathematical skill, good taste, and wit. It is a characteristically personal process and the best such teachers have surely left their personal marks on students and readers. Alexander Soifer is a teacher of problem solving and his book, Mathematics as Problem Solving, is designed to introduce problem solving to the next generation. –Cecil Rousseau The American Mathematical Monthly The problems faithfully reflect the world famous Russian school of mathematics, whose folklore is carefully interwoven with more traditional topics. Many of the problems are drawn from the author’s rich repertoire of personal experiences, dating back to his younger days as an outstanding competitor in his native Russia, and spanning decades and continents as an organizer of competitions at the highest level. –George Bersenyi The book contains a very nice collection of problems of various difficulty. I particularly liked the problems on combinatorics and geometry. –Paul Erdos Professor Soifer has put together a splendid collection of elementary problems designed to lead students into significant mathematical concepts and techniques. Highly recommended. –Martin Gardner To assemble so much material of the type used in Mathematical Olympiads, which has been tried and tested there, is unusual. To then present it in a form which develops themes, supported by relevant examples and problems for the reader, does the author great credit. –R. W. Whitworth The Mathematical Gazette 

Basic Problem Solving Principles $12.94 I began writing this book way back in 1992, just after the massive TQM movement had started losing its momentum. Corporate America decided to shift its point of view towards Total Quality Control, because it was too cumbersome, took too long, too much paperwork, and…many didn’t want to hear the results. In the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s, Quality Gurus Joseph M. Juran and W. Edwards Deming were on top of their game. Many companies were interested in Japan’s amazing turn around and wanted to know more about producing quality products and services. In the early 90′s, things started to change. Technology, the Internet, and a great demand to become faster, more productive and make as much money as possible at all costs seems to have become the primary objective in the corporate world today. Companies tend to throw "the baby out with the bath water." Everything seems to have a quick fix or short life cycle to it. The typical mindset of most, has become very off balance when it comes to taking time for quality control and conformance. It seems easier to throw something away and to go out and purchase another — companies make more revenue this way. It is important for all of us to have some sort of common sense to problem solving if we are going to survive the future challenges. As this world grows smaller, the potential for opportunities grows larger. I’ve tried to present this concept is the easiest way I know — I hope it helps.So next time you have a problem, don’t just assume, admire, or deny the problem, take a few moments to follow these three steps: DEFINE, ANALYZE, SOLVE

Here is everything that educators will need to know to use computers to improve higher level skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Current aspects of problemsolving theory, a philosophical case for including programming languages in the curriculum, stateoftheart research on computers and problem solving, and a look at problemsolving software are included in this comprehensive volume. The research and its application to instruction are grounded in problemsolving theory–making this book a unique and critical addition to the existing literature. 

Problem Solving Courts $179 In order to make the criminal court system more effective there has been a growing trend to have courts participate in what is essentially a rehabilitation strategy. Such courts are often referred to as “problemsolving” because they are working on root causes of criminal behavior as part of the dispensation of justice. This major shift in the role of the courts means that the court works closely with prosecutors, public defenders, probation officers, social workers, and other justice system partners to develop a strategy that pressures offenders to complete a treatment program which will ultimately, hopefully prevent recidivism. Research has shown that this kind of strategy has a twofold benefit. It has been successful in helping offenders turn their lives around which leads to improved public safety and the ultimate saving of public funds. This book is the first to focus exclusively on problem solving courts, and as such it presents an overview of the rationale and scientific evidence for such courts as well as individual sections on the key areas in which these courts are active. Thus there is specific attention paid to domestic violence, juvenile criminality, mental health, and more. Throughout, research findings are incorporated into general discussions of these courts operate and ideally what they are trying to accomplish. There is also discussion of how such courts should evolve in the future and the directions that further research should take.

Effective Problem Solving $25.45 For freshman through seniorlevel courses on Critical Thinking, Cognition, or Problem Solving. This brief survey of creative problem solving offers a collection of specific, practical procedures that one should use for various classes of problems – ranging from machines that need repairing, to mathematical puzzles, engineering problems, poorly defined industrial problems, comprehending lectures and reading, remembering information, invention, and difficulties between people. The principles – which are based on research and theory in cognitive psychology – are applied to problems in daily living and focus on how to overcome one’s own limitations in trying to solve a problem. Students thus learn principles for dealing with problems as well as what it is about themselves that can make the problem more or less difficult. 

Group Problem Solving $78.99 Experimental research by social and cognitive psychologists has established that cooperative groups solve a wide range of problems better than the average individual. Cooperative problem solving groups of scientific researchers, auditors, financial analysts, air crash investigators, and forensic art experts are increasingly important in our complex and interdependent society. This comprehensive textbook–the first of its kind in decades–presents important theories and experimental research about group problem solving. The book focuses on tasks that have demonstrably correct solutions within mathematical, logical, scientific, or verbal systems, including algebra problems, analogies, vocabulary, and logical reasoning problems. The book explores basic concepts in group problem solving, social combination models, group memory, group ability and world knowledge tasks, rule induction problems, letterstonumbers problems, evidence for positive grouptoindividual transfer, and social choice theory. The conclusion proposes ten generalizations that are supported by the theory and research on group problem solving. "Group Problem Solving" is an essential resource for decisionmaking research in social and cognitive psychology, but also extremely relevant to multidisciplinary and multicultural problemsolving teams in organizational behavior, business administration, management, and behavioral economics.The first comprehensive textbook on group problem solving in decades Written by a recognized authority in the field An indispensable resource for social and cognitive psychologists, and social scientists interested in decision making and experimental methods 

Bioinformatics: Problem Solving Paradigms $78.26 There are fundamental principles for problem analysis and algorithm design that are continuously used in bioinformatics. This book concentrates on a clear presentation of these principles, presenting them in a selfcontained, mathematically clear and precise manner, and illustrating them with lots of case studies from main fields of bioinformatics (e.g. sequencing and mapping, string storage and manipulation, pattern matching, alignment, gene identification, genome rearrangement, structure prediction, regulatory networks, pseudoknot detection). Emphasis is laid on algorithmic "pearls" of bioinformatics, showing that things may get rather simple when taking a proper view into them. The book closes with a thorough bibliography, ranging from classic research results to very recent findings, providing many pointers for future research. Overall, this volume is ideally suited for a senior undergraduate or graduate course on bioinformatics, with a strong focus on its mathematical and computer science background. 

The Psychology of Problem Solving $47.28 Unlike typical books on problem solving that are organized by content areas, such as mathematics and natural science, this book is organized by factors that affect problem solving performance, such as motivation, emotion, intellectual abilities, and working memory. Its goal is to organize in one volume all that is known about problem solving and the factors that contribute to its success or failure. 

Engineering Problem Solving $89.95 Engineering, at its origins, was a profession of problem solving. The classic text, Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences by Galileo Galilei is revisited in this ambitious and comprehensive book by Milton Shaw. Indepth discussions of passages from the Galileo text emphasize the “”mind set”” of engineering, specifically the roles played by experimentation and dialog in analysis and creativity. In the epilogue, the author points out that engineering students are usually exposed to two types of faculty. The first type is mathematically oriented and mostly interested in analytical solutions. The second type is interested in devising and experimenting with innovative solutions. However, since many talented graduates move directly into teaching instead of gaining real world experience, an imbalance of analytical teaching has occurred. Shaw points out through an example by Dr. Dave Lineback that learning to solve practical engineering problems is a very important part of an engineer’s education, but is often denied due to expense and time and effort required.

Successful Problem Solving $3.95 Some problems just don’t seem to go away. Another season goes by, and you’re still behind the same desk, even though the promotion you wanted didn’t come through again. Month after month, you and your spouse quarrel about the same old issues. And you still haven’t lost the weight you wanted to lose, or kept up that exercise program. You make resolutions, or promise yourself you’ll think of a plan. Time passes, and nothing happens. You’re right back where you were, and nothing has changed. According to bestselling selfhelp authors McKay and Fanning, four major core beliefs keep us from solving our problems: we tell ourselves that we just don’t deserve to get what we want, we tell ourselves that the world is too dangerous for us to risk a change, we tell ourselves that we’re too incompetent to fix our problem, or we tell ourselves that others are more important and that their needs should always come first. Start solving your problems by assessing which core beliefs are holding you back. The book offers you strategies you can use to overcome these inhibiting beliefs. Then discover problemsolving strategies that will help you deal with any problem you might face, including stepbystep instructions to help you assess the problem, brainstorm possible solutions, evaluate the consequences of each solution, and develop an action plan to put the best of the new solutions into practice. The cycle closes with an evaluation of how the problem solving process is going and an assessment of what you might change to improve any particular outcome.

The Role of Criticism in Understanding Problem Solving $99 In 1991, Denis Hlynka and John Belland released Paradigms Regained, a well received reader for graduate students in the field of educational technology. The Role of Criticism in Understanding Problem Solving updates some of those ideas initially proposed in Paradigms Regained, and extends the conversation into the contemporary discourse regarding problem based learning (PBL). Paradigms proposed the idea of criticism as a third method for the conduction of educational research, the first two being qualitative and qualitative. The concept of criticism as a tool for research is not well established in educational technology, although it is well established in other educational research traditions such as Curriculum Studies. Unfortunately, it is not always clear how criticism can be applied. This book views criticism as a way to step back and look at an educational intervention within educational technology through a particular critical lens. Criticism is viewed as a valuable approach to guiding meta analyses and theoretical studies, serving to prevent the proverbial ‘spinning of the wheels’ that often happens in educational research. By indicating new potential research questions and directions, criticism approaches can invigorate educational research. This book revisits the ideals of criticism in order to establish their usefulness for studying educational technology interventions to support problem based learning. First, a few foundational chapters set the stage for the conversations on criticism. Then, the role criticism can play in enhancing analysis and interpretation of the PBL literature is explored. Finally, case studies addressing the central concepts of the text are presented and dissected. This book represents a complete overhaul and rethinking of the use of criticism as a method for understanding and furthering the research area of PBL within the field of Educational technology. 

Integrative ProblemSolving in a Time of Decadence $159 Presents a unique study of Integrative ProblemSolving (IPS). The consideration of ‘Decadence’ is essential in the scientific study of environmental and other problems and their rigorous solution, because the broad context within which the problems emerge can affect their solution. Stochastic reasoning underlines the conceptual and methodological framework of IPS, and its formulation has a mathematical life of its own that accounts for the multidisciplinarity of real world problems, the multisourced uncertainties characterizing their solution, and the different thinking modes of the people involved. Only by interpolating between the full range of disciplines (including stochastic mathematics, physical science, neuropsychology, philosophy, and sociology) and the associated thinking modes can scientists arrive at a satisfactory account of problemsolving, and be able to distinguish between a technically complete problemsolution, and a solution that has social impact.

Problem Solving in Computational Molecular Science $99 For all practical purposes the basic physical equations governing the behaviour of a system at the molecular level can only be solved approximately. The key issue in any reliable and accurate computational study in molecular physics and quantum chemistry is the adoption of a suitable model which contains the essential physics and chemistry, is computationally tractable, and preferably amenable to systematic refinement. The provision of advice on the choice of an appropriate model for a specific problem has so far received scant attention. This issue is becoming acute as `standard’ software packages are becoming widely available and are being increasingly heavily used in both the academic and industrial sectors by researchers who have received no special training in the theoretical physics and chemistry that underpins them. This volume provides researchers whose background may not be in the computational molecular sciences with the necessary background to make intelligent use of the methods available by performing reliable calculations of appropriate accuracy and making a considered interpretation of the data so obtained.

Problem Solving for Process Operators and Specialists $85.61 This book provides methods to train process operators to solve challenging problems. The book is split into two parts. The first part consists of two parts; first developing a daily monitoring system and second providing a structured 5 step problem solving approach that combines cause and effect problem solving thinking with the formulation of theoretically correct hypotheses. The 5 step approach emphasizes the classical problem solving approach (defining the sequence of events) with the addition of the steps of formulating a theoretically correct working hypothesis, providing a means to test the hypothesis, and providing a foolproof means to eliminate the problem. The initial part of the book focuses on defining the problem that must be solved and obtaining the location, time and quantity based specifications of the problem. This part of the book also presents techniques to find and define problems at an early point before they progress to the critical level. The second part of the book deals with the utilization of fundamental chemical engineering skills to develop a technically correct working hypothesis that is the key to successful problem solving. The primary emphasis is on simple pragmatic calculation techniques that are theoretically correct. It is believed that any operator can perform these calculations if he is provided the correct prototype. Throughout the book, the theory behind each pragmatic calculation technique is explained in understandable terms prior to presenting the author’s approach. These techniques have been developed by the author in 50+ years of industrial experience. The book includes many sample problems and examples of real world problem solving. Using these techniques, theoretically correct working hypotheses can be developed in an expedient fashion.

Problem Solving Courts: A Measure of Justice $18.89 Problem Solving Courts explores a relatively new approach to criminal justice one that can have a powerful impact on how convicts connect with their communities. Problem solving courts, born out of the drug court movement in the 1980s, are run by judges who, with the assistance of law enforcement agents and mental health workers, meet with convicts on a weekly basis to talk about their treatment. Treatment programs often include therapy, in addition to the possibility of incarceration or early "parole" in which an offender can complete his or her sentence under the jurisdiction of the court. In this unique collaboration, scholar JoAnn Miller and judge Donald C. Johnson, creators of three successful problem solving courts themselves, address the compelling needs for alternatives to prisons, analyze problem solving courts in depth, and assess the impact problem solving courts can have on convicts and their communities. Problem solving courts can include: community courts that seek to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods struggling with crime and disorder; drug treatment courts that link addicted offenders to drug treatment instead of incarceration; family treatment courts that seek to stop the cycle of drugs, child neglect, and foster care; and domestic violence courts that emphasize victim safety and defendant accountability.

ProblemSolving: More Help with Preventing and Solving Common Horse Problems $17.23 "Volume 2" is a continuation of "Volume 1" with chapters covering problems such as those surrounding halterbreaking, bridling, saddling, mounting, hoof and leg handling, trail riding, and many others. Prevention and good horsemanship skills are heavily stressed making these books useful to anyone whether or not they have the problem discussed. The methods and philosophy the author presents are based on how horses think, learn, and communicate naturally. Rather than make a horse do what is asked, Marten’s approach sets up the training so the horse can search for the right answer, which is in the path of least resistance. The horse’s slightest try is rewarded by the handler’s or rider’s immediate release of pressure. "Volume 1" lays the foundation for all good riding with techniques and exercises that are timetested and proven. Chapters include common groundhandling problems such as being hard to catch and pulling back when tied, typical riding problems such as spooking and crossing water and the solutions to the evercommon problem of trailer loading. The books stress the theme that no problem is a singular event by itself. It’s instead part of the overall common thread throughout a rider’s interaction with his or her horse. Therefore, all problems lead back to building or rebuilding a stronger foundation, both on the ground and in the saddle.
