"Title" Tutorial Summary :
Problem solving doesn’t just apply to working out physics problems. It applies to many academic and real life topics. This tutorial gives a very general outline to help attack any type of problem. A common difficulty with science classes is the dreaded word problem. The KUDOS method gives the student a place to start and a step by step method to begin the solution. KUDOS stands for known, unknown, definition, output, and substantiation. In addition to problem solving, this tutorial give hints to succeed on tests. Multiple choice, free response, and essay tips are all covered.
