GRASS Strategy for Math Problem-Solving

GRASS is an acronym that stands for Given, Required, Application, Solution, and Statement.
  • Given – What information are you given in the word problem? I have students rewrite the information in their notebooks or GRASS sheet. Students accommodated or modified as per their I.E.P. can highlight the given information in one colour.
  • Required – What information are you required to find out once you solve this problem?
  • Application – What strategy will you use to solve this problem? (e.g. models, manipulatives, formulas, equations, etc.)
  • Solution – Solve this problem using the chosen strategy.
  • Statement – Sum up your findings in a final statement.
