I chose to list secondary Math strategies because I work at a high school. I also tutor all levels so I use strategies of all levels

Teaching Algebra through Active learning- working on real life problems

1. Word Problems- STAR strategy

S-search the problem, read it

T-translate (what are you going to

do?)

A- Answer the problem

R-Review the solution and check to

see if it's reasonable

2. Order of Operations strategy

O-Observe the problem- look for

multiple operation signs

R- Read the signs

D-Decide what to do first

E-Execute the rules of order

R-Relax, you're done

3. Make bookmarks to remind the strategy. Have a contest for the best one (ask the principal to judge) and print them, keep copies to give next years students, and continue the cycle of making the bookmarks (Yana Weinstein, 2018)

4. Offer frequent practice that is checked immediately to make sure good habits are formed.

Daily math problems on board

5. Graph paper

This can keep numbers in place

6. Visual Representing the problem

Draw pictures to help make the problem concrete.

7. Use real life questions for story problems, you can have the students reword the problem to make the same problem but a different story.

8. Have students track their progress

9. Use verbal skills to reinforce math process

10.Reduce process stress by reteaching the process in a mini lesson
