Problem solving is a skill that is implicitly learned by children, but there are a range of skills that are often not taught directly. This audiobook solves that problem!
Targeted to a younger audience. Topics covered include framing the problem; coming up with solutions; weighing options, and picking ideas. Other strategies that are discussed in the audiobook include prioritization, Occam's razor, estimation, guessing, logical reasoning, elimination of alternatives, scoping and persistence.
Overall, this is a great way to encourage a younger listener to add a few new tools to their approaches to solving problems. Lots of example problems are used from what to do if a lion attacks you; how to approach multiple choice questions; how to deal with being stranded on an island, and how Sherlock Holmes goes about solving problems.
This guide will bring more structure and ideas to your child's problem solving approaches and perhaps make them a little more creative too. The audiobook is written by Charlie Creed and narrated by Matthew Greene.
