This Problem Solving Strategies Poster Set is a must in any math classroom! By giving students a visual guide for solving word problems, students are more likely to arrive at correct answers and deeper math comprehension.
The posters walk students through 4 basic steps to solving any word problem: Understand, Plan, Solve, Check.
Understand – What is the problem asking you to find out? Circle the question, underline key words and numbers, cross out information not needed.
Plan – What can you do to solve the problem? (7 strategies listed on poster)
Solve – Do you plan! Work carefully, show your work and label your answer.
Check – Are the calculations correct? Does it make sense? Explain in words.
Print these out in a smaller size and use for Interactive Notebooks!
