Problem Solving Strategies

by Joelyn Carley

PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGIES

There are numerous approaches to solving math problems. 'Model  Drawing' is the first one that we have introduced because we feel that it has the greatest impact in building children's confidence in dealing with math problems. Most students enjoy visual effects. Seeing abstract relationships, represented by concrete and colorful images, helps in understanding, leading to the solution of the problem.

Other strategies that we will be using are: Drawing diagrams, looking for patterns, making graphs, an organized list, table, simulating a problem, working backwards, and writing equations.
