Additional Skill-Building Strategies – SAT Suite of Assessments

Provide students with equations and/or explanations that incorrectly describe a graph.

Ask students to identify the errors and provide corrections.

As students work in small groups to solve problems, facilitate discussions in which they communicate their own thinking and critique the reasoning of others.

Organize information to present data and answer a question or show a problem solution.

Ask students to create pictures, tables, graphs, lists, models, and/or verbal expressions to interpret text and/or data to help them arrive at a solution.

Use “Guess and Check” to explore different ways to solve a problem when other strategies for solving are not obvious.

Students first guess the solution to a problem;

Check that the guess fits the information in the problem and is an accurate solution;

Work backward to identify proper steps to arrive at the solution.
