Problem Solving on the Rekenrek

Posted on April 4, 2019. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The rekenrek is great tool to help students actually think through and model word problems. In this video, Dr. Nicki and her cousin work through various problem types using the rekenrek.   Here are 3 different ways to use the rekenrek to work on word problems:

1:  Students read word problems and solve them on the rekenrek.

2.  Students pick an equation and tell a word problem and solve it on the rekenrek.

3.  Match the model (premade cards) and the word problem

Happy Mathing,
