STUDENTS Checklist for Word Problems (Advanced)
If your student is good in math and you want to strengthen their self-efficacy skills
Before I Begin:
Read assignment instructions. Do I understand what I need to do?
Get scrap/graph paper, ruler, colored pencils, eraser, formula sheets, calculator and text book
Review the example problems from my notes or textbook
While I Solve:
Mark up the question: Underline what I need to find, circle numbers I will use, cross out what I don't need
Estimate an answer before solving (to confirm after that my final answer is reasonable)
Write out all my steps and calculations. Draw a picture to visualize if helpful
After I Solve:
Re-read the problem. Did I find what it asked? Is my answer close to my original estimate?
Check my answer using a different method
Write down questions about specific problems to ask my teacher
