In this paper we introduce a three step iteration method and show that it can be used to approximate the fixed point of a weak contraction mapping. Furthermore, we prove that this scheme is equivalent to the Mann iterative scheme. A comparison is made with other three step iterative methods by examining the speed of convergence. Results are presented in tables to support our conclusion.
