Word Problem Mnemonics

The purpose of a word problem mnemonic is to provide students with a framework for solving word problems. The mnemonic reminds students to work step-by-step through a word problem. Some word problem mnemonics can be used for problem solving beyond basic word problems. Common Core Standards: Multiple Setting: Whole Class, Small Group or Individual Focus […]

Schema-Based Instruction – Multiplicative

A schema is a way to organize or pattern information within a structured framework of known and unknown information. Within word-problem work, the learner identifies the type of problem (i.e., schema), which lends itself to solving the problem using a given organizational pattern. The main focus of Schema-Based Instruction or Schema-Broadening Instruction (SBI) is to […]

Graphic Organizers

A graphic organizer is a tool used to facilitate student understanding of new mathematical concepts. Graphic organizers can help students organize their thinking and connect new information to prior knowledge. They provide visual representation for students to take notes on new mathematical concepts they are learning. Graphic organizers can be used in any setting, from […]

Number Rockets

Number Rockets is a small-group tutoring program for first-grade students experiencing mathematics difficulty. With Number Rockets, students participate in lessons focused on 17 topics (with 1-6 days of tutoring per topic) to help improve understanding of first-grade mathematics concepts and skills. Common Core Standards: Multiple Setting: Small Group and Individual Focus Area: Multiple Full Brief […]

Solve it!

As indicated by Montague (2003), “The purpose of Solve it! Is to teach students to be good problem solvers.” Solve It! is a scripted curriculum designed to teach mathematical problem solving by engaging students in a series of steps that allow them to actively participate in metacognitive processing and demonstrate higher-order problem solving skills. Common […]

Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA)

With CRA, students work with hands-on materials that represent mathematics problems (concrete), pictorial representations of mathematics problems (representational), and mathematics problems with numbers and symbols (abstract).  The teacher explicitly bridges the connection between the concrete, representational, and abstract representations of the mathematics problems. Common Core Standards: All Setting: Whole Class, Small Group or Individual Focus […]

Schema-Based Instruction – Additive

A schema is a way to organize or pattern information within a structured framework of known and unknown information.  Within word-problem work, the learner identifies the type of problem (i.e., schema), which lends itself to solving the problem using a given organizational pattern. The main focus of Schema-Based Instruction or Schema-Broadening Instruction (SBI) is to teach word-problem solving […]
