PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do your students struggle with problem solving, well here is what you have been looking for. Its called Bar Model Drawing and is used by Singapore, which is an international leader in mathematics. Here are some reasons to use it.
1. Provides a transition from abstract to concrete levels of processing, giving word problems a visual context
2. Basically a “graphic organizer” that shows the relationships among numbers
3. Since the process isn’t appropriate for every problem, other problem-solving strategies may still be needed
4. A “step-by-step approach” that provides explicit, guided instruction to help student organize and apply a problem-solving strategy

Here are Forsten’s 7-Step Approach

1. Read the entire problem
2. Rewrite the question in a sentence form, leaving a space for the answer
3. Determine who and/or what is involved in the problem
4. Draw the unit bar(s)
5. Chunk the problem, adjust the unit bars, and fill-in the question mark
6. Correctly compute and solve the problem
7. Write the answer in the sentence, and make sure the answer makes sense
