Former NCTM President Dr. Francis "Skip" Fennell shows students how to use the four-step procedure to evaluate, interpret, and solve problems. Focus on Problem Solving helps students develop critical thinking and organizational skills while gaining a better grasp of word problems.

Compelling Real-life Applications Build Math and Critical Thinking Skills
  • Students learn a four-step procedure - reading, planning, solving, and checking - that helps them tackle nearly any problem.
  • Also emphasizes collecting, organizing, evaluating, and using information.
  • Students are taught a variety of non-routine strategies in order to approach different kinds of problems: guessing and checking, working backwards, making lists and diagrams, finding patterns, using scale drawings, and thinking logically.
  • Integrate math and writing! Written assignments help students think logically and communicate clearly.
  • Students learn to interpret graphs, tables, plots, maps, surveys, and experiments.
  • Teacher's guides give background on problem-solving strategies and detailed suggestions for introducing, exploring, and expanding reasoning skills.
