Whether you are a teacher, homeschooling, a tutor, or just a parent trying to help your children, the Problem Solving Maps methodology covered in this course will dramatically improve your ability to help struggling math students.
Problem Solving Maps (PSM) depicts three major thinking processes--inductive thinking, deductive thinking, and analysis--which are a common set of important skills needed to solve math problems. The generic structure of the PSM ensures that they can be used across multiple math topics and grade levels.
You will learn to break down math problems into manageable parts so that children can focus on solving portions of a procedure, rather than getting overwhelmed with the whole problem. Being able to solve a small portion of the problem gives students self confidence to go to the next step and so on which lead to better performance.
