Abstract: Mathematics teachers require different styles of teaching mathematical problem solving to cater to different ability pupils in schools. The paper discusses an integrated approach of teaching problem solving which involves application of some theories: working-backwards heuristic, task analysis, productive thinking and metacognition. A speed problem was used to illustrate how these theories were used to tackle the problem. This integrated approach serves as an alternative approach for solving mathematical problems.
