An academic article reviewing the book by Liping Ma (same as the article title). The article reflects and addresses the broader rationale and reasoning for the use of diverse means of modeling in mathematics by discussing how Liping Ma contrasts American and Chinese elementary math approaches to problem solving. It points out weaknesses that exist in some current teaching practices. Personal Note: The article is not too dense of a read and led me to reflect on the way I approach my mathematics
A digitally interactive lesson on solving multiplicative word problems with the help of models. This lesson provides a great example of how drawing models benefits students by helping them to visually organize the multiple pieces of information.
A math teacher's personal testimony as to why teaching the math practices matter as much as the content we teach. For me, this is a motivational resource more than an informational one; it keeps me striving to be the best teacher I can be.
