Problem Solving Steps
There are five Problem Solving Steps that break down the task of problem solving. This allows students to learn to problem solve in manageable steps.
The steps include:
1. Identify the problem and how it makes you feel
2. Determine how big the problem is
3. Generate three (3) possible solutions
4. Pick the best one to try
5. Try the solution and assess if it solved the problem.
It's important to teach students to evaluate if the problem is actually solved because they may have to try multiple solutions until the problem is fixed.
