March 2015 NTI: Grades PK-5 Mathematics Turnkey Kit for Teachers - Session 2

NTI Participants

Modeling Word Problems: Addition and Subtraction

Time: 3 Hours

Description: This session provides an opportunity to see coherent use of the tape diagram as a model that supports student understanding in grades K-7. Through analysis of various problem types, analysis of student work, and deliberate practice, this session suggests a pedagogy allowing students to make intuitive drawings followed by teachers’ guidance with the tape diagram. 

In order to support teachers in grades K-2, analysis and practice of the 12 addition and subtraction word problem situations will be emphasized.
