Attacking Word Problems

Attacking Word Problems

Do you understand the problem?  All of the words?

What is the problem about? 

Reread the problem. 

Can you restate the problem in your own words? 

What do you need to find? 

Is there something you need to find before that?

Summarize the given information in a table and/or diagram, and verify data. 

Solve.

Use units with your answer if appropriate. 

Check your work.
