Mathematical Discovery George Polya WileyApr 24, – Mathematics – pages 0 Reviews Combining standard Volumes I and II into one soft cover edition, this helpful book explains how to solve mathematical problems in a clear, step-by-step progression. Many beginning grad students found some of the proofs of the constructions to be too difficult, and needed the assistance of an experience professor and mathematician, and I count myself among them.

This book gives a good list of heuristics and the author is a famous mathhematical who popularised the heuristics approach to problem solving. I had no idea that they mathemahical be that difficult, otherwise I would not have taken the class, as it was an elective class in my MS in math program.
