Letter Strategy in Mathematics 3

Mnemonics help students with acquiring information in the least amount of time Mnemonics enhance student retention and learning through the systematic use of effective teaching variables. Students remember their codes for a long time example: North, South, East, West (never eat shredded wheat) 4

5 Discover the sign Read the problem Answer or draw a representation of the problem using lines, tallies, or checks Write the answer and check

D iscover the variable R ead the equation, identify operations, and think about the process to solve the equation. A nswer the equation. W rite the answer and check the equation. 6

4x + 2x = 12 Represent the variable "x with circles. + By combining like terms, there are six "xs." 4x + 2x = 6x 6x = 12 7

8 PRE-ALGEBRA: ORDER OF OPERATIONS Parentheses, brackets, and braces; Exponents next; Multiplication and Division, in order from left to right; Addition and Subtraction, in order from left to right. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally
