Bar models are pictorial representations of problems or concepts that can be used for any of the operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In word problems, bar models hold a huge benefit of helping students decide which operations to use and visualize problems.
Learn about the many types and levels of bar modeling for solving relevant and real-world problems. Solve simple to complex multi-step problems.
These concepts give students the advantage to transition smoothly from arithmetic to algebra.
K-8 Early Childhood and Middle School Teachers can deepen their understanding of solving many types of word problems.
Student-Generated Data (SGD)
Using Charts and Tables
SGD is relative to the students and increases the possibility that students will take a special interest in the analysis and reporting their findings.
The workshop includes samples of SGD and ways to perform analysis through practical applications arithmetic, probability, and statistics.
The use of excel spreadsheet can be used to display the results of the data.
Teachers are encouraged to use their creativity to find ways for students to generate and report their own data.
