Model Drawing is a step-by-step method of problem-solving in which students translate a word problem into a diagram or model, to help students see the mathematical relationships between information given and solve the problem successfully. During this hands-on training, participants will develop the essential knowledge and skills needed to implement model drawing strategies successfully into their own classrooms.
