UPS Check for Math Problem Solving


We are utilizing problem-solving method called UPS check.  The students are using this model as a strategy to solve  word problems.  These are the steps we utilize in class:
U - Understand the Problem
     What do you know?  What do you want to know?
P - Make a plan
     Choose to draw a picture, act the problem out, guess
     and check, or look for a pattern. Decide if you will 
     add, subtract, multiply, or divide.
S - Solve the problem using a number sentence
Check - Is my answer reasonable and does it make sense?
Please utilize UPS on homework assignments that have problem solving questions.  Thank you!
