Recently, the CUBES problem solving method has been circulating on Pinterest. I created this sheet to guide some of my lower level learners through the process. It helps the students to organize their thoughts and rewrite the word problem. I used it in small groups with them, but it can also be used whole class.
C - Circle any key numbers
U - Underline the question
B - Box any math action words
E - Evaluate what steps to take
S - Solve and Check
