Problem Solving

Knowing how to solve problems is an important skill and an essential part of our lives. We need to spend considerable effort and time on describing how problem solving should be taught and learned.

 

General Approach

Understand the Problem

§  Read the problem carefully to understand what is required

§  Break the problem up into smaller parts and understand each part

§  Visualise the information

§  Organise the information

§  Connect the information

§  Draw/Write the information into simpler form

 

Plan What to do / Devise a Plan

§  Choose an appropriate heuristic / method to solve the problem

 

Do / Carry out the Plan

§  Use computational skills ( +, -, × and ÷ ), geometrical skills and logical reasoning to carry out plan

 

Check the Solution

§  Check the reasonableness of the solution and answer

§  Improve / Change method used

§  Seek alternative solutions

§  Extend method to other problems
