Students are taught cognitive steps (read the problem, paraphrase, visualize with a picture or diagram, hypothesize a plan to solve the problem, estimate the answer, compute, and check. 1.) Following intervention of strategy instruction and structured worksheets, students used the general guidelines to direct themselves to: a.) re-read information for clarity; b.) diagram representation of the problems before solving them; c.) write algebraic equations for solving the problems. *Source: Seifert, Kathy.
