Some math advice/tips guides say that having a knowledge of heuristics can assist with mathematical problem-solving.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to get better at the subject over the summer before my first year of uni coming in the fall. I don't think, however, that I know what is meant when people use the term "heuristics." I'm wondering if someone wouldn't mind with a definition of this term and perhaps an example?

Greatly appreciate your help! TVM.
