Singapore Math®: A Visual Approach to Problem Solving

Andy Clark

The development of successful problem-solving skills is a key part of mathematics learning. Through visualization and the model drawing approach, commonly used in Singapore Math®, students gain the skills they need to tackle increasingly complicated word problems from one grade level to the next. In this edWebinar, participants will:

  • Understand the effectiveness of visual models and visualization to develop conceptual understanding and number sense
  • Explore and use the Singapore Math® model drawing approach to solve routine and non-routine word problems
  • Be able to use visual models to develop quantitative reasoning that leads to algebraic generalization
  • Enable more students to access complex problems using visualization and visual models
