I view the STAR test as anopportunity, not a burden ,since it allows schools and teachers to focus on the curriculum contained within the test.[email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 3. When I present content in class, the focus is onconcepts first , then problem-solving and algorithms.When students can see the big picture, they have the opportunity to grasp concepts that lead tofuture successin subsequent coursework.[email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 4. If they only learn how to push symbols around a page , or imitate the instructor without real understanding, the scope of their mathematics is somewhat limited.

Make STAR prep part of daily routine 5. Add variety to your preparation 6. Get students to the point of automaticity 7. Confidence in a job well done [email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 6. Heres an example of using the STAR 5th Grade materials see question 38, which says: If N = 4, what is the value of 6 x N 3 ? [email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 7. When students are shown only how to solve this specific problem, they are not as flexible as when shown how tosolve the entire class of similar problems .If they are shown only one way to relate to this problem, their problem-solving abilities are not as strong or versatile as if they can see this problem inMultiple Representations . [email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 8. 1. Lets set this up in a t-table format. Since6 x N 3is an algebra expression that varies according to the value of N, looking at a series of values brings this problem into clearer focus.Ournumber sense gains strengththis way. [email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 9. 2. Lets use language,the operating system of our brains : The pattern in the t-table can be expressed as, Starting with 3, add 6 each time.

We can see the rate of change as the slope.We can see the starting point as the y-intercept.Most importantly, we have a picture. [email_address] http://mrlsmath.com www.tttpress.comCalifornia STAR Test California STAR Test 11. When we are all done with this problem, our students havetools to work with for future problems , not just an answer to a single STAR question.Its important to view a problem within thelarger context , not in isolation.
