PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The ability to explain in words how a math answer was figured out is a critical skill in math class and in test taking. In tests, most of the written responses are the “explain” or “solve” (show) your answer type. A structure, the wheel, will help students think logically. A formula will provide students with a pattern for writing.

When students go into a testing situation, they are often nervous. Having something tangible, a wheel and a formula that they can draw in the test booklet, will make them more comfortable and give them confidence.

This PDF from Jan Cosner, an award-winning teacher, offers an effective solution for all students and teachers, both in state tests and in life.

Students will be able to do the following:
* solve a math problem
* brainstorm the steps on a wheel
* write a well-developed explanation in complete sentences
* proofread their work

The 77-page PDF contains the following:
* step-by-step instructions
* 30 problems with answer keys
* handouts that explain the writing process

Materials align to the Common Core standards.


Note that these materials are from the 2005 publication Formula Writing in Math by Jan Cosner.
