# Visualizing Word Problems

# Can You See It?

Visualizing the word problem with a drawing or diagram can help you to make sense of the scenario. Don't give up on a word problem before you draw it!

## LEARN IT

When faced with a complex or daunting word problem that you just can't make sense of, try sketching out a diagram of the scenario. Although this skill is especially useful in geometry, don't limit yourself to just sketching shapes. Visualizing is a helpful tool for ratios and proportions, understanding the basic operations, probability and counting, and tons of other math topics.
