Summarize chapter 3 from the publication “Engineering Design and Problem Solving”,
2nd edition, by Steven K. Howell, Prentice Hall, 2002. A copy of the chapter is included
Summarize the chapter in 2 pages using double-spacing, 1-inch margins, and 12 point font.
Write the summary as if addressing a classmate on the subject. Remember, a summary is an abbreviation of material, it is not a commentary, a review, or a report. Your summary needs to summarize the entire chapter but it does not mean that you have to include every issue mentioned in the summary. To the contrary, it involves selecting that which is important and omitting the trivial or irrelevant without omitting portions that contain important information.
