The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice stress the importance of strong problem
solving and reasoning abilities to develop conceptual understand. Problem solving skills and strategies are
taught and reinforced in problem solving lessons throughout the year. Additionally, through class
discussions, students are learning that there are multiple ways to solve a problem and that getting wrong
answers are helpful as part of the learning process.
In math class we break the problem solving process down into three parts, each with guiding questions for the students to ask themselves when progressing through a problem. These are also great questions for you, as a parent, to use when helping your child on a tricky math homework problem. The Problem Solving Process
Below is a list of common problem solving strategies students have been using in class to:
