Mathematics courses offer great scope for the development of this ability. Problem solving ability is ranked as one of the most important objectives of teaching Mathematics. It is majorly depending upon intelligence reasoning ability and mathematical ability. Problem ability is the ability to think and reason on given level of complexity. Lester defines problem solving as a Process of coordinating previous experience knowledge and intuition in an effort to determine an outcome is unknown. Mathematical problem solving is being occupied a very important place in teaching mathematics the main goal of a mathematics teacher is to develop the ability of problem solving among the all levels of students. So it is a fruitful exercise for the development of one's mental facilities as the process of problem solving involves the scientific method of thinking and reasoning. Developing higher cognitive abilities of problem solving is the most important of all education goals. The primary goal of mathematics teaching and learning is to develop the ability to solve a wide variety of complex mathematical problems through understanding the different mathematical concepts. This ability in mathematics will help the students to develop specific skills which are important for the student to be as a good problem solver in mathematics and

Many students start their school stage with a positive attitude towards mathematics but this become less positive during the school years with the increase of the difficultly level in problems. To solve this type of problems students need more analysing power with thinking capability so this increases pressure among the student so they won't show more interest among these sums so secondary school children feel more difficult in mathematics subject when compared with all other
