Brain Power Enrichment Programs aim to develop problem-solving abilities in students who wish to improve their skills. Additionally, the programs may provide challenging, stimulating and inspirational learning experiences through engagement with math and logic problem solving for gifted children. The Student Version book accompanies a Level Two student through his/her first semester of the problem solving program (or it may be used independently as a problem solving workbook). However, this Teacher Version may be used by a teacher or tutor as it has, in addition to the content of the Student Version, short instructions for each lesson as well as answers to problems. 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 in 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.
