Putting the Process to the Test

To solve problems, students must "think" through the process. In order to do this, they must ask and answer a series of questions. Now that you have had a chance to look at the four steps to problem solving, it is time to put them to the test.

Read the following problem.

  1. $4200
  2. $1450
  3. $1200
  4. $250
  5. Not enough information is given.

In the box below, type in some questions that you would ask in the "Find Out" step of problem solving. When you have finished, click on Check My Answers to compare your questions to those in the pop-up screen.
