Our materials support students in transforming their initial informal understanding of a context into the formal mathematical knowledge.
Teachers have a special guiding role in this process.
In this section, we introduce you to some of the strategies RME teachers use to support guided reinvention. You might begin by:
- Watching a lesson taught by an experienced RME teacher
- Exploring strategies that will enable strong mathematical discussions
- Watching one of our materials designers model a lesson and explain how he works with RME materials
- Reading more about the bar model and the ratio table and how they help students learn
These pages provide you with pointers about where to start and offer multiple techniques to try out in your classroom.
