Make It Yourself Series:

### Self-Correcting Math Problem Sets

• Stapler

• Zip-lock bags (snack or sandwich size)

• Business size envelopes for problem strips

• Optional: Old business cards, laminating pockets for business cards or plastic rolodex covers for business cards

• Examples in this presentation come from:

• Senari Worksheet Generator 2 - Multiplication and Division

• Pick a topic for your problems and find an appropriate worksheet. We picked this one from this menu of Worksheet Generator 2.

• Be sure that the worksheet and answer sheet are the same size.

• Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as shown.

• Staple the strips at one end, with the problem strip on top, so that the students can check their own work.

• Use business size envelopes to store the strips. Mark the name of the concept on the envelope.

• Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as before.

• Invert the answer strip, then turn it over and slide the strips so that the blank sides are together.

• Staple each individual problem and cut them apart.

• The student can work each problem on paper, then turn it over to check his/her answer.

• Store extra problems in a zip-lock bag until you need them. (Label the bag with the title of the worksheet.)

front back

• For more durable problems (to be used in a classroom or with a number of children in a family), print the worksheet and answer sheet on full-sheet label paper.

• Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as before, then cut each set of strips into separate problems. Do not staple.

• Peeling off the backing, put the problem on the back of an old business card, and the answer on the front, over the person’s name and company information.

• Laminate the cards, or place them in rolodex covers.

• If you plan to use the rolodex covers, you can store the problem cards in an zip-lock bag. Put the covers on when you are ready to use them.

• Print several copies of the worksheets and answer sheets for the same concept.

• With the blank sides together, staple each worksheet to its answer sheet in the upper right hand corner.

• When the student is through, s/he can simply lay the 2 sheet side by side for easy checking.

• For some students, you may want to take the answer sheet until s/he has finished the work.

• To provide practice with particular concepts.

• To help the student see his speed and accuracy improve with a particular concept.

• To enable parents, teachers and students to isolate particular difficulties.

• In a timed test of multiplication facts, a student misses 6 x 9, 7 x 9, 9 x 6, and 9 x 7.

• Which is the more productive assessment/comment?

• You made 4 mistakes” or “You just missed 2 of the facts.”

• For a timed test, a student should use a worksheet and answer sheet for a concept that he is studying.

• Have the student put his name, the date, and his starting time at the top of the sheet.

• When a student finishes, s/he should mark the time on the sheet, and then check his work.

• S/he should compare the time and accuracy with previous tests of the same concept.

• The goal should be an improvement in either time or accuracy for the current concept.
