This study examined how the use of a graphic organizer impacted students' approach and attitudes towards solving word problems. Word problem graphic organizers have great success in helping students to organize their thoughts and visualize the relationships between formal learned knowledge and the application of that knowledge. Through practice with the organizer, and both verbal and written assessments, the impact of the graphic organizer on students' organization and application of mathematical knowledge was examined.
