Practical Approach to Teaching Math: #4 Teaching Problem Solving by Drawing Mathematical Models

- Joe Lytle says:A learn zillion video that provides an illustrative mini-lesson on drawing mathematical models to solve multistep word problems (4th grade).
- Joe Lytle says:A great digital resource to guide students through was to construct and solve math problems using models.
- Joe Lytle says:This is a more indepth explanation for the rationale and objective of using mathematical models to solve problems.
- Joe Lytle says: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
- Joe Lytle says: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.
- Joe Lytle says: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.
