Tape Diagrams Workshop: A Tool For Mathematical Reasoning

  • P.S. 261 314 Pacific Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)

Tape diagrams can help students (and teachers!) make sense of problems at the same time they illuminate the meaning of operations.  In this workshop we will explore the ways in which tape diagrams can be incorporated into mathematics instruction to support student understanding of the relationship between values in a problem.

We will represent complex problems ourselves using tape diagrams and consider the impact of shared representations on the building of robust mathematical communities.
