The "C" stands for "circle important numbers or words," the "U" stands for "underline what the question is asking," the "P" stands for "plan your strategy," and the "S" stands for "solve and check." This is a great tool to use for students of all levels. It forces them to employ thinking skills necessary in solving any type of word problem. Often, kids want to jump right to an answer.
