The textbook solves every problem using the "ISEE" (Identify – Set up – Execute – Evaluate) approach. Although I pretty much agree with those steps (though not necessarily in that order), we don't require such a formulaic approach to problem solving. You can follow the ISEE method if you want, but it is not required.
