Singapore Math Strategies: Advanced Model Drawing for Grades 6-9

In this course, you'll master model drawing, a revolutionary technique for teaching problem-solving to middle school math students. When you introduce model drawing into your classroom, your students will succeed with word problems, build math skills, and develop self-confidence. They will even look forward to math!

You will learn how to use model drawing with many different types of word problems, including part-whole problems, word problems involving comparisons, and before-and-after word problems. You'll also master advanced techniques to help you model more complex problems, and gain insights into how to guide students as they grapple with consecutive integers, remainders, percentages, and problems involving rate and distance. Finally, you'll put it all together as you create your own word problems based on models provided in the course. You'll even learn how to train parents in the basics of model drawing so they can help their kids continue to build their problem-solving skills. Model drawing works—and it's fun as well. Get ready to turn your math students into math lovers!
