Brain Power Enrichment Programs aim to develop problem-solving abilities in students who wish to improve their skills. Additionally, the program may provide challenging, stimulating and inspirational learning experiences through engagement with math and logic problem solving for gifted children. This book accompanies a Level Two student through his/her second semester of the problem solving program (or it may be used independently as a problem solving workbook). All Brain Power programs are based on a step-by-step approach, which enables students to understand problems of increasing complexity. Level Two continues to equip students typically in grades 6 to 8 with problem solving strategies and techniques, and supports the application of these skills to algebra and geometry. The implications for improving one’s problem solving skills are numerous. These include a more positive attitude toward math and science, improved thinking flexibility and creativity in all subject areas, as well as increased success on academic, gifted, university admissions, and professional program tests (many of which are designed with an emphasis on assessing higher-order thinking skills). Moreover, knowledge of a range of problem solving strategies coupled with experience in their application, have benefits which transcend the classroom and enter the realm of professional, social, and intellectual accomplishment.

Maintaining that the ultimate goal of critical reasoning is to make informed, educated decisions, this text presents a process that enables the reader to apply proper reasoning techniques in a practical fashion. This book is balanced between three activities: identification of arguments, evaluation of arguments using inductive reasoning, and evaluation of arguments using deductive reasoning. For computer scientists, mathematicians, philosophers, or anyone who is interested in using the practical applications of logic to evaluate their own writing and arguments as well as the writing and arguments of others.
