Math Modeling

DESCRIPTION:

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.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn how to build strong problem-­‐solving skills in students by following logical progression
  • Discover how to translate word problems into visual models and graphic representations
  • Learn how to use pre-­‐Model Drawing and Model Drawing techniques to lay the foundations for algebraic thinking
  • Master the easy-­‐to-­‐learn, step-­‐by-­‐step Model Drawing strategy to boost student confidence
