Thinking Blocks – Model Math Word Problems – Elementary to High School

Oh how I wish they had this website when I was learning to solve Math word problems!  Since I now know that I am a visual learner, this site would have helped me tremendously.  Thinking Blocks is a FREE web site that was developed uses the Model and then Solve approach to completing Math word problems.

Thinking Blocks models are available for Addition, Multiplication, Fractions, and Ratios or use the Modeling Tool to build your own models.  After you pick a section, I would suggest that you have students watch the movie which explains how to manipulate the models.
