Students then move to a rectangle telling them to add numerators, followed by a decision diamond to determine if the fraction is in lowest terms. If not, students would follow an arrow to a rectangle telling them to reduce the fraction to its lowest terms.
When introducing flowcharts for solving math problems, provide the flowchart steps for students.
They must also determine if there are any places that require a decision, which would go in a diamond shape.
Once they draw the flowcharts, have them actually solve the problems using the flowcharts.
Break down the process for your class so students understand how the flowchart works as it relates to math.
Start with a simple problem to allow practice working through the flowchart. Talk through the process so students understand what you are doing.Based in the Midwest, Shelley Frost has been writing parenting and education articles since 2007.Her experience comes from teaching, tutoring and managing educational after school programs.Getting to the one correct answer to a math problem challenges many students who may not know where to start or how to get to the answer.Flowcharts provide a framework for the math process, giving students a step-by-step approach to tackling the problem.We make Disco, the most powerful, user-friendly, and popular process mining software in the world.You should check it out and download your free demo version here!Whether you are a beginner, or an experienced process mining practitioner — you may want to join one of our popular Process Mining Trainings, given every few weeks by experienced guides.

Diamonds represent decisions -- often with a yes or no answer -- that change the direction in which you move through the flowchart.An example would be to decide if a fraction is in lowest terms.
