Effective Teaching and Learning Practices of Top-Performing Nations
PR1ME Mathematics teaches via problem solving through the systematic development of problem sets; and by focusing on both aspects of problem solving - the method and the process.
PR1ME Mathematics explicitly teaches an efficient 4-step UPAC problem solving process. This process builds good habits for approaching mathematical problems of all levels of difficulty.
- Draw a picture- Make a list- Choose an operation- Guess and check- Look for a pattern- Make suppositions- Act it out- Work backwards- Solve part of the problem
PR1ME Mathematics explicitly teaches different problem solving strategies and how to select, express, categorize and compare these strategies.
The Bar Model Method is one of the most powerful strategies for mathematical problem solving. It allows students to solve complex word problems using visual representation.
Pearl read 10 pages of a book on Monday. She read 1/3 of the remainder on Tuesday. If she still had 24 pages to read, how many pages were in the book?
Students progress through different types of problem sets including word problems, non-routine problems, problem posing tasks and mathematical modeling.
