Start Now To Learn Singapore Math Strategies: Advanced Model Drawing for Grades 69 When you say, "It's time for math," do your students roll their eyes? What teacher hasn't dealt with that? It doesn't have to be that way. In this course, you'll master model drawing, a revolutionary technique for teaching problemsolving to middle school math students. Model drawing is a core part of Singapore Math, a base10 math program that forms the foundation of math instruction in Singapore. When you introduce model drawing into your classroom, your students will succeed with word problems, build math skills, and develop selfconfidence. And they'll even look forward to math! You'll learn how to use model drawing with many different types of word problems, including partwhole problems, word problems involving comparisons, and beforeandafter word problems. You'll also master advanced techniques to help you model more complex problems, and gain insights into how to guide students as they grapple with consecutive integers, remainders, percents, and problems involving rate and distance. Finally, you'll put it all together as you create your own word problems based on models provided in the course. You'll even learn how to train parents in the basics of model drawing so they can help their kids continue to build their problemsolving skills. Model drawing works—and it's fun as well. Get ready to turn your math students into math lovers!

What Is Model Drawing?
Jason groans when you say it’s time for math, Leona can’t get the hang of equations, and Sunny struggles to make sense of word problems. What’s the solution for all of them? Model drawing! In this lesson, you’ll discover the basics of model drawing and find out why this technique is a core part of Singapore Math—an approach that turns middleschool mathhaters into eager, proactive problem solvers.
PartWhole Word Problems
Today, we’re going to dive into modeling by exploring one the easiest types of word problems: a partwhole word problem. We’ll begin with simple problems and work our way up to trickier ones, ending up by modeling partitive and quotitive word problems. As we go along, you’ll get plenty of practice building your own models and using them to find solutions. In addition, I’ll offer helpful tips for getting all of your students involved in your modeldrawing sessions.
Word Problems Involving Comparisons
Tom has three times as many apples as Nguyen. Nguyen has six more apples than Beth. How can we figure out how many apples they each have? With modeling, of course! Today, we’ll explorecomparison problems involving addition, multiplication, or both. By the time we’re done, you’ll be solving the trickiest problems with ease—and you’ll also have a good grasp on how to combine functions in a single model.
BeforeandAfter Word Problems
Do “beforeandafter” word problems make your students go all wobbly in the knees? Well, don’t worry, because modeling quickly cuts these problems down to size. In this lesson, we’ll tackle three types of beforeandafter questions: fraction, ratio, and age questions. You’ll learn how to draw two models (a before model and an after model) for each problem, and you’ll discover why it often makes sense to start at the end of your problem—not the beginning.
Shifting and Subdividing Units
We’re going to add to your toolbox of skills today by exploring two new modeldrawing techniques: unitshifting and subdividing. These skills are invaluable when you’re modeling complex problems, and you’ll find out how to use them separately and in combination. In addition, we’ll talk about the importance of teaching perseverance as your students work on increasingly challenging problems.
Comparison Problems Using Fractions, Decimals, and Ratios
You modeled comparison problems earlier, but now it’s time to kick it up a notch! In this lesson, you’ll solve comparison problems involving fractions, decimals, and ratios. You’ll also get ideas for fun classroom activities that will help your kids understand math concepts.
Problems Involving Consecutive Integers
Today, we’ll focus our sights on problems involving consecutive integers—that is, numbers that follow each other in sequence. In addition, you’ll learn how to model problems involving consecutive odd or even integers—and you’ll discover some secrets for making sure your learners have a strong math vocabulary.
Remainder Word Problems
Kids (and even teachers) often have trouble with remainder problems, but questions like these are a cinch when you put the power of modeling to work for you. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use remainder bars in your models and how to handle remainder problems involving fractions, decimals, and percents. You'll also discover how to differentiate your modeling lessons by creating "living models." It's a powerful learning technique—and it's fun!
Percents
Middleschool students need to be able to work easily with percents, and here’s your chance to help them ace this skill. In this lesson, you’ll move from simple percent problems to complex ones that also involve beforeandafter concepts. By the time you’re done, 100% of your kids will have a new tool for conquering percent problems!
RateandDistance Problems
Does your class groan when they see a problem that starts out, "A train leaves the station at 9 a.m. going 50 miles an hour . . . "? Well, after today, they'll actually look forward to brain teasers like this. (Really!) That's because with modeling, your students can ace even the toughest rateanddistance problems in just a few minutes. We'll work our way from easy to complex problems, and along the way you'll get tips for helping kids grasp the concepts of speed, rate, time, and distance.
Putting It All Together: Practicing Your New Skills
We've worked a wide range of problems in this course, and now it's time to put it all together. In this lesson, you'll find two practice sessions that will help you hone your modeling skills. Then we'll end off with a twist in your third practice session: You'll create your own word problems based on the models I give you. It's a great way to boost your modeling creativity!
Getting off to a Successful Start
This is our final lesson, but it’s just the beginning of your modeling adventure! Today, you’ll get tips for starting that adventure off on the right foot as you introduce modeling to your students for the first time. In addition, you’ll find out how to hone your own modeling skills so you’ll shine in the classroom. And finally, we’ll look at how you can turn parents (even the skeptical ones) into allies by teaching them the basics of modeling.
