Strategies include elimination, reasonableness of the answer, checking with inverse operations, estimating, labeling answers and more! Your students won't forget the chorus to this one any time soon!
Maintain your highest level of concentration!
Follow through each problem with determination!
Keep in mind a problem’s never done
Until it’s checked with the inverse operation!
Carefully read the question that’s written;
Deeply consider the choices you’re given.
Underline the important information;
Drawing pictures can clarify the situation.
If it’s multiple choice, use estimation
To narrow down the choices through elimination.
When you think you’ve found the solution,
Check your work with the inverse operation.
If you subtracted, check it with addition.
If you multiplied, check it with division.
See if you get back - back to where you started;
If not, try again; and don’t be brokenhearted!
When answering a question, always label the unit;
is it a length, an area, or is it cubic?
And label what each number means:
It could represent cupcakes or football teams.
Or, if it’s money, label it with a dollar sign:
To the left draw an S and a vertical line.
