Transcript of Problem Solving Process

What is a problem?
Problems are everywhere. They are things that make life difficult. Things we want to change. Examples of problems include:
A messy locker
Always being late to 4th period
What are some other problems you face?
-With your table come up with three problems you deal with
The problem solving process is used by engineers, inventors, technologists, and builders to solve simple problems and very complex ones as well.
Step #1
Define the Problem
Can you state it in your own words?
What are you trying to find or do?
What condition must be changed or met?
Step #2
Gather Information
Step #3
brainstorm solutions
As many as possible!
Better done in groups
Positive Feedback always
Check out example
step #4
Choose the best solution
Will this one work the best?
What are the pros/cons of each?
Will it meet requirements set forth in definition?
step #5
implement the solution
Build it
Write it
Create it
step #6
Evaluate the solution
What went well?
What didn't?
Does the answer make sense?
Is the problem solved?
If not, what now?
Sometimes, after we have completed the process, we have to return to a former step and try again.
The problem solving process often
becomes a loop of creating and refining our best ideas.
