problem presentation

1. Problem Statement – This is a summary of the given
information and an explanation of what needs to be
2. Diagram – A sketch or diagram showing how things are
setup and containing given and needed information.
3. Theory – Laws, relationships, and equations which will
govern the steps used to solve the problem.
4. Assumptions – Information that provides a starting point
from which to solve or provides relationships that allow
you to eliminate unknowns.
5. Solution Steps – The steps taken to obtain the solution.
6. Identify Results & Verify Accuracy – Clearly identifying
the final result (boxing, double underline, highlighting,
etc.) and making sure that this solution makes sense and
has the correct units.
