Stretch your Mind Activity Model Drawing Schedule 8:30am -11:30am Break: 9:45am- 10:00am 1. Make a Name plate from the note card in front of you. Fold in half and write your name. 2.Work on the FRONT side only and solve the problems any way you choose. Show your work!!!
Agenda Introduction Why Before How Learning to Model Draw Closing Assignment
Introduction Purse/Wallet Activity: Something that reminds you of someone important to you? Something that you cannot live without? Something that you got recently?
Why Before How Write two strategies you use to teach word problems in your classroom on a post it note. Students struggle with word problems. Many dont even attempt them. Abstract is hard for the students to see.
Strategies for Solving Word Problems Guess and Check Look for a pattern Solve a simpler problem Make a table, chart, or list Use a picture, diagram, or model Act it out Work backwards Eliminate possibilities Use an equation or formula -MathMatters: an integrated approach
Concrete Its of utmost importance for students to have concrete experiences when solving word problems. At any level you can have your students act out word problems either using manipulatives or using students in the classroom. We need 16 volunteers. (come up to the front)
At a Springfield Cardinals game, 15 people from the seats get to participate in the games between innings. One fifth of the people play musical chairs. One third of the remaining people participate in the tricycle race. How many people didnt get to play those two games? Those of you at your seats can use the blocks to act it out ConcreteActing it Out
There are 16 tiles. ½ of the tiles are red. ¼ of the tiles are blue. The rest of the tiles are yellow. How many tiles are yellow? Concrete Using Manipulatives In your classroom, milk the problems for all they are worth? How many tiles are blue? How do you know? What about red? After you have organized your tiles to represent the problem, DRAW a model on your paper that represents the problem.
What is Model Drawing? Model Drawing is the pictorial representation in the concrete- pictorial-abstract approach to learning. Model drawing is a process of synthesis that a student goes through as they construct the model based on the information given in the problem, then he or she analyzes the model to develop a sequence of logical steps for the solution. - The Singapore Model Method
Advantages of Model Drawing Helps students to: 1. Develop proficiency in mathematics 2. Understand fundamental mathematical concepts such as fractions, ratios, and percentages 3. Develop problem-solving skills 4. Participate in conversation, debates, math talk 5. Solve challenging word problems using the students higher-level thinking skills. 6. Develop visual thinking capabilities and algebraic thinking. 7. Write equations based on the models.
Lilly picked 3 apples in the morning and 2 apples in the afternoon. How many apples did Lilly pick altogether? Pre Model Drawing Stage 1 3 + 2 = 5 Lilly picked ___ apples altogether. Lillys Apples 5
Pre Model Drawing Stage 2 __ + __ = __ Lilly picked ___ apples altogether. Lillys Apples 325 5
Pre Model Drawing Stage 3 __ + __ = __ Lilly picked ___ apples altogether. Lillys Apples 325 5
Discrete Modeluses one-to-one correspondence (small #s) 1 or 2 variables Pre Model Drawing morningafternoon Still using just apples…one variable Lillys Apples Lilly picked ___ apples altogether. 5 __ + __ = __ 325
Pre Model Drawing Lilly ate 2 apples and 1 orange. What was the total number of pieces of fruit that Lilly ate? (2 variables) Lillys Fruit ao 3 __ + __ = __ 213 3 Lilly picked ___ pieces of fruit.
Step-by-Step Model Drawing 1. Read the entire problem. 2. Rewrite the question in sentence form, leaving a space for the answer. 3. Determine who and/or what is involved in the problem. 4. Draw the unit bar(s). 5. Chunk the problem, adjust the unit bars, and fill in the question mark. 6. Correctly compute and solve the problem. 7. Write the answer in the sentence, and make sure the answer makes sense.
