March 2015 NTI: Grades PK-5 Mathematics Turnkey Kit for Teachers - Session 3

NTI Participants

Modeling Word Problems:  Multiplication and Division

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. 

The session will include analysis of all four operations, but will emphasis analysis of 7 multiplication and division word problem situations.

Note: Powerpoint file is not yet available for this session.
