## What is the role of a computer in problem-solving?

Although computers play an important supporting role as a tool in the discipline, they are just that–tools. Given a problem, a computer scientist’s goal is to develop an algorithm, a step-by-step list of instructions for solving any instance of the problem that might arise.

## Is it important to solve or address the problem why or why not?

Problem-solving is important both to individuals and organizations because it enables us to exert control over our environment. Problem-solving gives us a mechanism for identifying these things, figuring out why they are broken and determining a course of action to fix them.

## What operation are you going to use to solve the problem?

Answer: The process of “choosing the operation” involves deciding which mathematical operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) or combination of operations will be useful in solving a word problem.

## What is the number sentence in the problem?

Number sentences are simply the numerical expression of a word problem.

## How do you decide what information you need to solve a problem?

Here are seven-steps for an effective problem-solving process.

1. Identify the issues. Be clear about what the problem is.
2. Understand everyone’s interests.
3. List the possible solutions (options)
4. Evaluate the options.
5. Select an option or options.
6. Document the agreement(s).
7. Agree on contingencies, monitoring, and evaluation.

## What are the steps in problem solving in mathematics?

Four Stages of Problem Solving

1. Understand and explore the problem;
2. Find a strategy;
3. Use the strategy to solve the problem;
4. Look back and reflect on the solution.
