Visual Models in Math: Connecting Concepts with Procedures Overview


Screen Shot 2015-01-06 at 5.13.04 PMNew standards & assessments emphasize building procedural knowledge from conceptual understanding – the algorithm comes at the end of instruction. Our Spring 2015 series focuses on the role of visual models in helping students make this transition effectively so that the steps of procedures make sense to them. In Part One of the Five-Session Series for the Implementing Common Core Standards in Math Community on, Dr. Sara Delano Moore shared an overview of the series and discussed student understanding of the number system, an essential foundation for this work. View the webinar and delve into number sense and the role of visual models in developing concepts and procedures.
