Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving

By defining critical thinking and examining how it’s applied to the process of problem-solving, this two-section program will show viewers how to handle whatever challenges come their way. An in-class discussion segment on critical thinking explains how to rationally assess a statement and express disagreement, while a similar segment on problem-solving considers what to do when preparing for what appears to be an overwhelmingly tough exam. A Cambridge Educational Production. A part of the series Academic Success: Smart Tips for Serious Students. (10 minutes)
