*Why I don’t like it: It can be a little vague and doesn’t give concrete “what to dos.” Checking that students completed the “understand” step can be hard to see. It doesn’t have a name yet, or an acronym, (so can it even be considered a strategy…?*) but I will have the steps on an anchor chart in my room. I have rolled this out to students, and it went decently.

They are able to analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals.

They make conjectures about the form and the meaning of the solution, and they plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt.

The school year is off to a roaring start, and this is the year that I figure out how to teach problem solving strategies (and continue making students show their problem solving strategies). Why I like it: It gives students a very specific “what to do.” Why I don’t like it: With all of the annotating of the problem, I’m not sure that students are actually reading the problem. Why I like it: Students are forced to think about what type of problem it is (factoring, division, etc) and then come up with a plan to solve it using a strategy sentence. Check stands for understand, plan, solve, and check.

Problem solving strategies are pivotal to word problems. None of the steps emphasize reading the problem but maybe that is a given. This is a great strategy to teach when you are tackling various types of problems. Why I like it: I love that there is a check step in this strategy.

Indeed, as students move forward in their mathematical learning, they will need to apply problem-solving processes to more and more complex situations so they become college and career ready.

The first Common Core State Standard (CCSS) for mathematical practice focuses specifically on problem solving: Proficient students are able to explain the meaning of a problem and look for entry points to its solution.In word problems, there are so many words that need decoding, extra information, and opportunities for students to solve for something that the question is not asking for. Why I don’t like it: Though I love the opportunity for students to write in math, writing a strategy statement for every problem can eat up a lot of time. Students having to defend the reasonableness of their answer is essential for students’ number sense. S stands for circle the important numbers, underline the question, box the words that are keywords, eliminate extra information, and solve by showing work. S stands for read the problem, underline the question, name the problem type, and write a strategy sentence.The first step to solving a math word problem is to read the problem it in its entirety to understand what you are being asked to solve.After you read it, you can decide the most relevant aspects of the problem that need to be solved and what aspects are not relevant to solving the problem. Once you have an idea of what you're attempting to solve, you need to determine what formulas, steps, or equations should be utilized in order to find the correct answer.If it does not appear logical, review the steps you took to find the answer and look for calculation or set-up errors.Recalculate the numbers or make other changes until you get an answer that makes sense.Math word problems can be tricky and often challenging to solve.Employing the SQRQCQ method can make solving math word problems easier and less intimidating.They often jump right into calculations and computations without understanding what the problem is asking or what they're looking for.LD students may also struggle to understand the words or wording within math word problems correctly.
