Problem Solving, what is it and why is it important?
Problem Solving takes information from what we already know and adds it together to make a sequence of events to solve a specific task.
Problem solving is a skill that must be taught, and practiced in order to develop the skills necessary for success throughout grade school, into adulthood.
We practice problem solving from a very young age. Learning how to problem solve applies to both academics, and real world situations. Students need problem solving skills to learn to navigate through different situations which will impact their ability to preform tasks, especially later on in life.
