Five Steps to Aha !

I’ve distilled the five most essential steps, to help you arrive at the correct math solution.

Try these critical solution strategies when you practice math:
1. BACKsolve the Answer Choices (Use the answers given.)
2. PIN Numbers (Plug in a number that you have chosen.)
3. Read carefully; UNDERLINE what the question is asking.
4. DIAGRAM the Question
5. Eliminate 2-3 answers, then guess. (Eliminate answers that are too large, off the scale.)

Master these steps well.  Your brain may receive an AHA.
