# How to Solve it (Part I)

In the next section, he elaborates on the role of the teacher and the importance of the questions and suggestions. He thinks that, when a teacher asks such questions and uses such suggestions, which lead the student to solve the problem, the student may realize they are effective and ultimately use them on his or her own to solve other problems. Finally, he mentions that by imitating other people who solve problems and by practicing, the student will be able to solve many more problems.

From those sections, Polya seems to make a point about problem solving ability: there is no magic about solving problems; it is a skill that can be learned with imitation and practice. In the other sections, we’ll see what more he has to say.
