Free “Rock and Roll Math Problems” Assessment Strategy Tool


Looking for an engaging strategy to use when reviewing multiple-choice math problems? 
“Rock and Roll Math Problems” provides engagement while students are completing multiple-choice math problems. This assessment tool encourages student groups to explore various parts of the problem-solving process.
Here’s how it works:
1. Pair students and assign them to be Partner A or Partner B.
2. Provide each pair with a number cube (die).
3. Provide each pair with a concept-based word problem or multiple-choice item.
4. Partner A rolls the number cube and then uses the Rock and Roll activity page to determine which task to complete.
5. Partner B completes the activity indicated on the number cube using the word problem or multiple-choice item.
6. If Partner A does not understand Partner B’s response, Partner A should ask clarifying questions until the response is understood.
7. Pairs should continue alternating rolls until all of the tasks have been completed or for the allotted amount of time.
8. As a class, have pairs discuss their responses to each of the tasks. Be sure to highlight any responses which reveal essential understandings or new strategies.
9. Begin the process again with a new problem if available. (Note: Sometimes, one well-developed question is more effective than several basic ones. Be sure to choose a task that will give you the most bang for your buck.)

Comment Bank



Comment Bank


Product Description

Do you run out of meaningful criticism for your students’ high school papers and work? 

I created this comment bank because I had the same problem. After a little while, you don’t know what to write on a student’s test.

The Comment Bank has been constructed to save the Language Arts teacher time when offering constructive and helpful comments on students’ evaluations. Marking papers in any Language Arts class is always a lengthy process. Increasingly, teachers are being asked to write more detailed comments to highlight students’ strengths and weaknesses, and sometimes we run out of ideas. Being the vigilant teachers we are, and wanting to help our students achieve their potential is and will always be one of our priorities. To this end, when marking students’ papers, writing down everything we want to say to them about their papers would be a very lengthy process. I have decided to share my personal comment bank with you.

The bank comments on the following areas: 

-The next step

The package contains 7 pages of comments, which are divided by levels of accomplishment A, B, C and D. (levels 100 to 50)

Included in this package are over 120 comments for students. You can get inspiration from these pages to hand write your comments, or you can do what I do and copy/paste your comments into a word document, print, and staple the comment to the students’ evaluations. This is a real time saver. Parents, students, and school administration LOVE this method of feedback. And, this way, it takes much less time to be much more efficient. I hope you enjoy it!
