Assignment 4.1: Problem Solving
Write a 2-3 page paper following the steps below:
With an abstract
Step 1: Identify a problem you would like to solve.
Think about the problems you are now encountering or may be encountering in the future. Consider problems about relationships, money, living arrangements, school, career, family, friends, or others. Document your problem by writing a paragraph about it.
Step 2: Research various approaches to problem solving.
Use the information in the textbook and perform research on the Internet or other resources to find multiple approaches for solving problems. Key search terms: analogy heuristic, backward search or working backward, means-end analysis, and algorithm
Step 3: Use the 3 of the problem-solving approaches and apply each of them to your problem.
Document the step-by-step approach to problem solving for each of the 3 approaches you have chosen (cite any sources as necessary).
Apply that approach to your problem, documenting the results.
Describe which approach your found easiest to use and why.
Did each step-by-step approach come to the same conclusion for the problem? Why or why not?
Conclude the assignment with an assessment on how effective these problem solving techniques were (or will be) on the problem you identified.
Is this question part of your Assignment?
