Strategies

When taking a problem solving course, students often feel like they are spending too much time doing problems. Since these courses typically assign homework, it’s tempting to just go to lecture and do problems but not much else. It’s important to not only do practice problems, but to understand the underlyingconcepts. If you fully understand the lecture/book material before approaching problems, you will gain a better understanding of how concepts fit together and will experience fewer roadblocks when doing problems later. This will save you time as you will not need to waste time memorizing steps or practicing more than you need to. If you spend too much time doing homework problems,  have trouble understanding problems, or feel your grades don't reflect your time and effort, you should follow our Problem Solving Study Cycle:
