Understanding Area of a Rectangle Conceptually

Let's tackle Area of a Rectangle conceptually using a series of visual prompts to help students generate the formula for finding the area of ANY rectangle!

How To Convert Units of Measurement Visually

Tackle Measurement and in particular unit conversion conceptually using a series of visual prompts to help students generate relationships between units.

Understanding Area of a Triangle Conceptually

Let's tackle Area of a Triangle conceptually using a series of visual prompts to help students generate the formula for finding the area of ANY triangle!

Understanding Area of a Circle Conceptually

Let's tackle Area of a Circle conceptually using a series of visual prompts to help students generate the formula for finding the area of ANY circle! We'll also show the circumference of a circle!

Using Number Paths As A Linear Model

In this series of Math Is Visual Prompts, we slowly introduce the idea of a linear model (i.e.: number line) through the use of a number path. This is a much less abstract way to introduce the idea of linear measurement through counting to make it accessible by all.

Comparing and Ordering On A Number Path

In this series of Math Is Visual Prompts, we slowly introduce the idea of a linear model (i.e.: number line) by placing numbers on the number path.

Multiplicative Comparison With Volume

Visual number talk prompts comparing the volume of 3-D figures multiplicatively using various standard and non-standard cubic units.

Area of Composite Figures With Non-Standard Units

Visual number talk prompts that explore the area of a composite figure by decomposing and recomposing with non-standard units.
