The Number Line: More on Making the Most of Math Models
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.
