Help students succeed as problem solvers in and out of the classroom!

Problem solving skills are critical to students' success in mathematics, but the techniques can't be caught; they must be taught. Based on the premise that educators must take a deliberate approach to the teaching of problem solving skills, this book helps teachers engage students in the process.

Problem Solving in Mathematics, Grades 3–6 stresses the importance of problem solving in mathematics and presents nine strategies that students can use to solve problems, such as working backwards, finding a pattern, making a drawing, or solving a simpler equivalent problem. Each chapter demonstrates how teachers can:

  • Apply the strategies to problems at different grade levels
  • Incorporate these strategies into a mathematics program
  • Understand how each strategy can be applied to real-life situations
  • Make each strategy an integral part of students' thinking processes

With helpful teaching notes, sample problems for students that fit into any mathematics curriculum, and step-by-step solutions to sample problems, this book is perfect for teachers who want their students to succeed in mathematics!
