Slow processing of information, followed by frustration and anxiety, will often lead LD students to try and get through math word problems as quickly as possible – which is why they often jump straight into computations in their attempt to make it to the finish line as quickly as possible.
SQRQCQ is metacognitive guide the provides LD students with a logical order for solving math word problems.
Many students slow down in Math problems, especially on long ones, because they may be slacking in the way they read the question; in many other cases, students do not bother to read the problem at all.
While reading the question intently, you develop at least a 'blueprint' of the solution in your head.
Use the formulas and/or equations identified in the previous step to complete the calculations.
What Are The Steps In Solving Word Problems
Be sure to follow the steps you outlined while setting up an equation or using a formula. Once you've completed the calculations, review the final answer and make sure it is correct and accurate.Now that you've determined what needs to be solved, reread the problem and pay close attention to specific details.Determine which aspects of the problem are interrelated.However, word problems can present a real challenge if you don't know how to break them down and find the numbers underneath the story. Solving word problems is an art of transforming the words and sentences into mathematical expressions and then applying conventional algebraic techniques to solve the problem. Many teachers, while willing to give plenty of help to their students so that they can be faster in Math, do not have the time to do so.In that case, it is up to the student to figure out techniques on how to solve math problems more quickly than they did before.It is impossible to find an answer if you can't determine what needs to be solved.Basically, what are the questions being asked by the problem?Math word problems tend to be especially challenging for Learning Disabled (LD) students.LD students often lack "Concept Imagery", or the ability to visualize the whole problem by creating a complete mental image.
