​During IMPACT maths the students are taught to read the question carefully when solving a numeracy problem.  We teach them to H.U.C. the problem.  This involves three steps.


Highlight the Key Words:  They identify key words that usually indicate specific mathematical operations.  Many of these words are listed in the table below.
Underline the question:  This ensures that they are focused on answering the exact question that is being asked.
Circle the numbers: They need to identify the numbers that are relevant to solving the problem and make sure they avoid the numbers that are distractors.
