### Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps:

Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps Decide how you’re going to solve the problem

### Step 2 - Decide how you’re going to solve the problemChoose a method:

Step 2 - Decide how you’re going to solve the problem Choose a method Use a graph Use formulas Write an equation Make a list Find a pattern Work backwards Use reasoning Draw a diagram Make a table Act it out

### Step 2 - Decide how you’re going to solve the problemMake your diagram:

Step 2 - Decide how you’re going to solve the problem Make your diagram N E S W start 1 mile finish

### Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps:

Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps Solve The Problem

### Step 3 - Solve the problem:

Step 3 - Solve the problem N E S W start 1 mile finish Measure the distance between the start and the finish andamp; compare it to the mile.

### Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps:

Problem Solving is easy if you follow these steps Look Back andamp; Check

### Step 4 - Look Back & CheckReread the problem:

Step 4 - Look Back andamp; Check Reread the problem A Girl Scout troop went on a hike. First they walked 1 mile east, then 2 miles south, then 3 miles west, and 1 mile north, then 2 miles east. How far is the troop from their starting point?

### Step 4 - Look Back & CheckCompare the information from the problem to your work.:

Step 4 - Look Back andamp; Check Compare the information from the problem to your work. N E S W start 1 mile finish 1 mile east, 2 miles south, 3 miles west, 1 mile north, 2 miles east

### Step 4 - Look Back & CheckDid you solve what the problem asked you to solve?:

Step 4 - Look Back andamp; Check Did you solve what the problem asked you to solve? N E S W start 1 mile finish 1 mile east, 2 miles south, 3 miles west, 1 mile north, 2 miles east How far is the troop from their starting point? one mile

### Draw a diagram to solve this problem.:

Draw a diagram to solve this problem. A picture frame with a photo is 15 inches wide and 12 inches high. A mat around the photo is 1 ½ inches wide on all sides. What are the dimensions of the photo? 15 12 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½

### Slide19:

15' 12' 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ Step 1 – Add the two mat edges together. 1 ½ 1 ½ + 2/2 2 Step 2 – Convert the 2/2 into 1 and add this to the whole number 2.

### Slide20:

15' 12' 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ + 1 3 Step 2 – Convert the 2/2 into 1 and add this to the whole number 2.

### Slide21:

15' 12' 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 15 3 - 12 Step 3 – To get the width of the photo subtract the 3 from 15.

### Slide22:

15' 12' 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 12 3 - 9 Step 4 – To get the height of the photo subtract the 3 from 12.

### Slide23:

12' 9' 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 12 3 + 15 Step 5 – Your photo size is 12 x 9 inches. To check your work, add 2 times the mat width to each of your new measurements. 9 3 + 12

### Draw a diagram to solve this problem.:
