A dielectric image method is proposed which uses the polarization charges around a point charge and at dielectric boundaries. The problem of a point charge and a dielectric plate in different dielectric media is solved. The method requires only fundamental algebra and integral calculus. The solution of this problem is compared with the solution by separation of variables.
