# Problem Solving Steps Posters

Description

These five posters complement and support the Problem-Solving Steps Presentation. These posters are a great resource to print and display in the classroom which act as fantastic anchor charts for students when problem solving. They have been adapted from Newman’s Analysis problem solving concept. The symbols for each step are consistent throughout the presentation, allowing students to gain a memory of each step and what it means. These reference posters are a must for any classroom focusing on problem solving.
