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 expanded on a recent presentation that introduced four visual models: the array/area model, the length model, the number line model, and the set model.

James dove 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 were also explored.
