Powerful Conceptual Models

Summary

Conceptual models provide a scaffold for learning. They give students something to hang their understanding on and a jumping off point for students to extend their knowledge further to solve unfamiliar problems. They help students develop confidence and mathematical intuition. But are some conceptual models more useful than others? A good conceptual model can do all of the above. But a great model also makes explicit the connections between topics. In this workshop we look at some great models that do all this. Teachers will leave with a framework for unit planning and to guide student thinking in a number of units that allow students to view mathematics as a whole rather than a collection of separate topics.
