Section 3: The Word Problem Solving Process

Know the feeling ? You begin to solve a Word Problem, whether in exam or other assignment, and it looks like a meaningless collection of words and numbers. "Oh my god ! Where to start solving ?" And - "What to do next ?",  are questions that students often ask their self in this situation. Well, the answer is simple. When we approach a Word Problem,  we ALWAYS start by understanding the Situation first. Period.  No calculations, No variables definition. We want to understand the "Big Picture" or simply "What's Going On" in the problem. This is where we start solving the problem, And this is what we're gonna learn to do in this lesson. No Screaming...  Hold tight, let's begin !
