To illustrate some of the ways that we can employ a deliberate problem solving process, apply general heuristics, and look toward development of solution strategies, I offer some teaser problems. We’ll revisit these problems throughout the text where they serve as fodder for more targeted discussions of solution strategies. These problems vary in complexity and are in most cases fairly open-ended. As we’ve already discussed, these are features of real problems and though we may feel a bit of anxiety about that, we should also realize that this presents opportunities for creativity and ingenuity.
