### Abstract:

This book of teacher materials supports Problem Solving Strategies: Crossing the River with Dogs and Other Mathematical Adventures - a text for a one-semester course in problem solving. Besides answers for all the problems in the student text, here you'll find invaluable support for teaching the course, including: Letters to parents and colleagues explaining the course ; "Nuts and bolt" about teaching a problem-solving course using the text ; Suggestions for using cooperative groups, including ready to use group-building activities ; Discussion about assessing problem solving, including descriptions of two assessment systems. Teacher resources for each chapter include: Chapter overview ; Blackline masters of text problems (for when you want students to close their books before they read solutions) ; Extra Problem Set A (called Version 2) for more practice ; Three extra Problem Sets B for use in later semesters. -- from back cover.
