The instructional ideas presented in this kit are specially designed for teaching students who are working with problem solving skills that encompass addition and subtraction through pre-algebra or algebra skills.
The kit includes a quick, easy to use criterion-referenced rating scale, an ideas matrix, and 34 research-based strategies to improve students' skills in the following areas: reading and understanding math problems, using strategies to solve math problems, checking the reasonableness of the answer, and using what they learned to solve other math problems.

The rating scale:
•evaluates behaviors that interfere with effective math problem solving
•uses behavioral terminology from George Polya's seminal work on math problem solving
•relates the behaviors to the NCTM process standard: problem solving

The matrix:
•quickly identifies which ideas will target selected behaviors
•offers multiple ideas for each behavior

The ideas:
•include a one-page explanation of each of the 34 ideas
•list handy tips to increase each idea's effectiveness
•provide helpful illustrations and examples
•offer reproducible masters for most ideas

Complete Kit Includes: Manual and 10 Evaluation Forms (2005)
