*Mathematical problem solving is a process that involves a set of factors and tasks to achieve a defined goal.*It depends on many skills and factors which therefore makes it challenging both to learn and to teach.

Mathematics is now used to quantify numerically and spatially natural as well as man-made situations.

It is used to solve problems and with the advent of the computer technology, it has helped in making social, economical and technological advances that few decades ago would have been unthinkable.

This paper will discuss the idea that problem solving is a process that needs to be understood by instructors so that they can develop better and more effective classroom activities and tasks.

The necessary skills for problem solving as well as the methods and strategies to teach or facilitate them are discussed.

To balance the equation, they can then subtract 7 from 89.

Suppose students must find the difference of 567 and 153.

My purpose here is to present some of these issues in order to stimulate discussions.

Suggestions on how to facilitate certain aspects of mathematical problem solving, as I apply them in my classes, are also presented.
