This course is an introduction to classic and nontraditional problem-solving strategies. Students will learn how to successfully gather information, arrange it, implement one or more strategies to best solve a problem, and then communicate the solution in both written and oral form. Above all, this class will teach how to think creatively and critically and how to solve problems collaboratively.
