512- Context versus Keyword Approach to Problem Solving

Friday, April 15, 2011: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
White River Ballroom G/H (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Ann H. Wallace

Solving problems using a keyword approach skips the step of understanding and jumps directly to selecting a solution strategy or algorithm. Good problem solvers look beneath the surface information at the underlying problem model. This presentation will focus on how to help students understand word problems before solving them.
