For Teachers

https://sites.google.com/site/mathematicsplayspace/

A combination of systematic and explicit instruction, posing questions and the use of visual representation is effective to help students learn to solve word problems.

Modeling thinking aloud combines elements of both systematic and explicit instruction, and posing questions. MaPS, with its dynamic visuals and interactive capability, is effective in providing the visual support for students to make the connection between knowns and unknowns in a word problem.
