Solving Word Problems the Singapore Way
By Char Forsten
Model drawing, adapted from a Singapore approach to solving word problems, offers a clear, pictorial approach to teaching logic, number relationships, and problem solving. In this book, Char introduces the step by- step process and helps you guide students in applying it to sample problems providing examples ranging from simple addition to fractions, decimals, ratios, rates, and percents. Then she follows up with plenty of extra problems all fully reproducible so your students can practice what they’ve learned.
Want to reinforce the simple steps of model drawing once youve taught them? The accompanying Step-by-Step Model Drawing poster makes a colorful reminder to display in your classroom.
Recommended for grades 1-6.
