One Hundred Problems in Elementary Mathematics

An equal number deal with more amusing or more practical subjects, such as a picnic ham, blood groups, rooks on a chessboard, and the doings of the ingenious Dr. Abracadabrus. Are the problems in this book really elementary?

Both a challenge to mathematically inclined readers and a useful supplementary text for high school and college courses, One Hundred Problems in Elementary Mathematics presents an instructive, stimulating collection of problems. Many problems address such matters as numbers, equations, inequalities, points, polygons, circles, ellipses, space, polyhedra, and spheres. An equal number deal with more amusing or more practical subjects, such as a picnic ham, blood groups, rooks on a chessboard, and the doings of the ingenious Dr. Abracadabrus. Are the problems in this book really elementary? Perhaps not in the lay reader’s sense, for anyone who desires to solve these problems must know a fair amount of mathematics, up to calculus. Nevertheless, Professor Steinhaus has given complete, detailed solutions to every one of his 100 problems, and anyone who works through the solutions will painlessly learn an astonishing amount of mathematics. A final chapter provides a true test for the most proficient readers: 13 additional unsolved problems, including some for which the author himself does not know the solutions.

This book contains 15 chapters: (1) "Teaching Problem Solving"; (2) "Using Calculators and Computers in Elementary School Mathematics"; (3) "Organizing for Instruction"; (4) "Teaching Numeration of Whole Numbers"; (5) "Teaching Numeration of Common and Decimal Fractions"; (6) "Teaching Addition and Subtraction of Whole Numbers"; (7) "Teaching Multiplication and Division of Whole Numbers"; (8) "Teaching Addition and Subtraction of Common and Decimal Fractions"; (9) "Teaching Multiplication and Division of Common and Decimal Fractions"; (10) "Teaching Measurement"; (11) "Teaching Geometry"; (12) "Teaching Rates, Ratios, Proportions, and Percents"; (13) "Teaching Statistics and Probability"; (14) "Teaching Integers and Their Operations"; and (15) "Teaching Number Patterns and Theory." The two appendices include discussions on "Calculators and Computers" and "Mainstreaming--Can Individual Needs be Met"? The chapters in this book reflect the strands taught in the elementary school mathematics curriculum. Throughout each chapter are collections of problem sets that divide the chapter into sections. A number of these problems are similar to lessons that could be used with elementary school children. (PK)
