3 Problem solving
When you approach a problem there is every likelihood that you may take a different route to the solution than somebody else. That is absolutely fine! Some approaches may just be more efficient, and get you to answer more quickly than others. The more experience you have with problem solving the better you will become at it.
Depending on your previous experiences and how you initially take in a particular problem, the way you decide to begin to solve the problem will vary. Solutions to everyday problems may just need the use of common sense and organisation to work your way through them.
As you work through any problem, remember that there are usually alternative methods for reaching the solution. If you get stuck using your initial approach, try a different one. Keep in mind that using pictures and staying level-headed will carry you far, and most likely help you finish solving an exercise. So try not to panic!
