This PDF is designed to help students organize and systematically attack mathematical problem solving. I use the acronym C.U.B.E.S. as a mathematical problem solving strategy.
C: Circle the key numbers and write them in your work space.
U: Underline the important facts in the question.
B: Box any math action words. These Key words help you understand how to solve the problem.
E: Eliminate any facts you do not need to solve the problem. Evaluate what steps you should take to solve the problem.
S: Solve and check your answer. Does my answer make sense? Double check your work.
