Go through the steps for problem solving together.
Step 1: UNDERSTAND the problem
Help your child understand the problem by getting him to read aloud one sentence at a time. Ask your child to explain his understanding of the sentence read in his own words. Once your child understands the sentence, move on to the next sentence.
Step 2: PLAN What To Do
After understanding the problem, prompt your child to think of how to solve the problem. Give your child time to explore different methods to solving the problem. Encourage him to talk about what he is thinking. Challenge your child to find alternative ways to solving the problem.
Ask Leading Questions such as…
“What should you do next?”
“Will your method work?”
Step 3: DO It
Advise your child to write proper mathematical sentences to show the process of solving the problem. Develop the habit of showing all working clearly as method marks will be awarded in the examinations.
Your child should read the question again and answer according to what is asked for. Reading the question and writing the final answer statement is a checking mechanism to ensure the correct answer is given. (eg. Giving the answer in the unit required)
Step 4: CHECK the Solution
Ask your child to check his answer. Ask leading questions such as…
“How did you get this answer?”
“Is your answer reasonable?”
“How do you know that your answer is correct?”
“Did you use another method to check if your answer is correct?”
