It doesn't take long as a math teacher to find different skills and procedures on which students make common errors. But how can we help prevent our students from making these errors other than just telling them not to? "Red Flag Fred" is here to help! As students incorporate this friendly little character in their notes, they will now have a visual and creative note-taking tool to help the correct method stick in their minds! This strategy can easily be used with math lessons in grades 7-12.
Note: You can find this strategy bundled at a discount with my nine other strategies in "10 Easy Strategies for Student Engagement in the Math Classroom."
