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

§  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
