1.  Read the problem.

2.  Make a plan.

3.  Carry out the plan.

4.  Check your answer.

 

Other factors to consider:

Do you need to refer to a chart, table, or graph?

Do you need to create a chart, table, or graph?

Can you estimate the answer first?

Do you require any tools (ruler, compass, protractor, etc...)?
