Visual and concrete models support coherent content progressions in mathematics because they can be used across the grade levels. In this edWebinar, ORIGO Education’s President and Co-founder James Burnett will build on a recent presentation that introduced four visual models: the array/area model, the length model, the number line model, and the set model.
This session will delve further into the number line model by showing how they are used to develop a deep understanding of whole numbers, relative position, fractions, and decimals. Essential skills such as addition, subtraction and equivalence will also be explored.
Join James to learn how to make the most of number lines. There will time to ask him your questions after his presentation. K-6 teachers, primary math teachers, math curriculum directors, elementary math supervisors, elementary math coordinators, elementary administrators, elementary special education teachers or specialists, math interventionists, and Title I math teachers are invited to attend.
