SYMPTOMS: You’re just starting out on your journey toward using bar models to supercharge your math lessons and transform your students into problem-solving experts. You’re excited, but concerned your lessons will quickly turn into an awful combination of chaos and mass hysteria. You want to make sure you start your students off with support and an appropriate level of challenge, but you’re not sure how.
DIAGNOSIS: Stage 2 Bar Model Anxiety
PROGNOSIS: Extremely Favorable – Provided treatment recommendations are followed
TREATMENT: Webinar Attendance and Mathematical Therapy
Attend our webinar, take copious notes, ask questions, and solve the problems your students will solve BEFORE you start the lesson!

- How to scaffold bar model problems to support struggling learners
- A logical process to organizing their thoughts and solving problems
- Activities to help develop their skills and visualize mathematics
Dr. Bill Tozzo and Dr. Amy Butterfield-Tozzo are co-authors of the Singapore Mathematics program think! Mathematics published by Shing Lee. Shing Lee is one of two Singaporean publishing houses approved by the Ministry of Education, that provide books here in the U.S. Amy and Bill share over 35 years of full-time classroom teaching experience, and 10 years of teacher education and leadership.
