How Do You Solve a Problem by Making a Table and Finding a Pattern?

Note:

Making a table can be a very helpful way to find a pattern in numbers and solve a problem. This tutorial shows you how to take the information from and word problem to create a table and use it to find the answer!

Planning is a key part of solving math problems. Follow along with this tutorial to see the steps involved to make a problem solving plan!

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.

Using logic is a strong approach to solving math problems! This tutorial goes through an example of using logical reasoning to find the answer to a word problem.
