5- A Model Approach to Teaching and Solving Word Problems

Thursday, April 16, 2015: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Grand Ballroom A (Westin)


Lead Speaker:
Greg Tang


Visual models are the key to making word problems easier to solve at every grade level. We'll explore a strategic progression from discrete, to part-whole, to tape diagrams, and then to double number lines that develops the algebraic skills needed for higher math. The goal isn't to make math easy—it's to give kids the tools they need when math gets hard!
