Word Problem Solving Rubric: Teach to whole class, review in guided math groups

Here is a great word problem solving rubric!  I would discuss this and make examples with the class so everyone understands all the elements.  I would also make individual copies so students would have it as an “up and close” reference.  They could keep it in their problem solving notebooks.  I would go over their story problems in small guided math groups, guided by the rubric.

Happy Mathing,

Hi Dr.Nicki,
This rubric is very student ( and teacher ) friendly. I was wondering – when teaching students how to write solutions to open-ended word problems, what do you think about an “answer frame” to get them started? This could be a mini-lesson with the teacher modeling how to use math vocabulary in the explanation along with modeling precision in computation. These practices are noted in the Common Core. Any suggestions for lessons??

Thanks for a valuable tool,

Hi Lisa,
Be sure to look at the NYC math exemplars (posted Oct 22, 2011) that I put up because those have rubrics that give guidance.

Happy Mathing,
Dr. Nicki
