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!

## STEP 1: WATCH THE VIRTUAL CLASS VIDEO AND TAKE NOTES

### Make sure to note the following:

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.
