8-Step Model Drawing: Singapore's Best Problem-Solving MATH Strategies
Hogan, Bob; Forsten, Char
Crystal Springs Books
In this book, Bob Hogan and Char Forsten introduce American mathematics educators to the model drawing process adapted from the much-acclaimed Singapore approach. They explain what model drawing is and why it's such an effective problem-solving tool. They show exactly how teachers can guide their students through the process, tell which key points are essential for students to take away from each lesson, and demonstrate how to apply the same 8 steps to everything from simple addition to rates, ratios, and percentages. This book is designed to be helpful to teachers trying to find a way to reach all their math students, looking to incorporate the basics of model drawing in their classes, or who want to learn more about the model drawing process. It is divided into three parts: (1) An Introduction to Model Drawing; (2) Problems for Guided Practice; and (3) Problems for Independent Practice. (Includes list of resources and index.)
