Make It Yourself Series:

### Self-Correcting Math Problem Sets

Supplies You Will Need
• 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
Getting Started
• 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.
Problem Strips
• 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.
Individual Problems - 1
• 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.)

Individual Problems - 2
• 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.
Self Correcting Worksheets
• 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.
Timed Tests - Purposes
• 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.”
Timed Tests - Procedures
• 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.
