Summary - we examined five experiences students need to have and all the theories supporting them using the case study of addition (7+3+2) and subtraction (200-18). We also looked at multiplication (times table) and division (351:3). We use these case studies to examine learning experiences for high level learning.
We looked at two introductory bar model problems and one challenging one. We see how word problem help students develop visualization, communication and metacognition.
