    A very readable and informative work of nonfiction that should appeal to those who liked The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, this book concerns Alice Kober, a Brooklyn College professor of the s who made major leaps in solving a tricky, alluring linguistic/archaeological problem before her untimely a few years later, building on her insights while giving her little credit, a 4/5(). The 12 books in the first series are stay-up-late page-turners. Savvy, capable heroes and heroines infiltrate gangs, take down terrorists, and investigate international arms dealers, all while maintaining covers as “normal” teenagers. Perfect for: Your high-flying daredevil, problem-solving genius of a middle-schooler.

      According to the study, 21 st century skills prepare and equip youth for the challenges and demands of work in today's knowledge-based, technology-driven, globalized environment. An in-depth analysis reveals that of these seven areas, real-world problem-solving is most strongly linked to higher self-reported work quality.   I teach on the top floor of a century-old building without air conditioning. Only half of the windows open, and it’s not unusual for the temperature in my classroom to flirt with degrees in the first month of school. God only knows what the heat index reaches once you add in the Midwest humidity. Add in teenagers.

This article is based on the final chapter of the authors' forthcoming book, Human Problem Solving (Englewoocl Cliffs, N. J.: Pren-tice-Hall, in press). Probability theory began in seventeenth century France when the two great French mathematicians, Blaise Pascal and Pierre de Fermat, corresponded over two prob-lems from games of chance. Problems like those Pascal and Fermat solved continued to influence such early researchers as Huygens, Bernoulli, and DeMoivre in estab-.

One further approach to problem solving is the one taken by Sir Fredrick Bartlett in his book Thinking. In this book, Bartlett characterizes problem solving as a form of exploration. The history of logic deals with the study of the development of the science of valid inference ().Formal logics developed in ancient times in India, China, and methods, particularly Aristotelian logic (or term logic) as found in the Organon, found wide application and acceptance in Western science and mathematics for millennia.

The Stoics, especially Chrysippus, began the. For nearly half a century, the popularity of leadership and expertise has been rising in organizations as well as in research. Both topics have been the object of a multitude of academic research articles and books chapters nationally and internationally (Bass, ; Germain, Vecchio, Schriesheim, Martinko, & Van Fleet, ).
