Board Work Model

This is a method of organizing board work in order to facilitate an understanding of problem-solving strategies.


  • The board should be divided into 4 sections:
    1. prerequisite knowledge,
    2. mathematical steps,
    3. narrative of the steps,
    4. additional sample problem.
  • Encourage one student to fill out section 1 on the board.
  • Then, encourage two students to simultaneously complete section 2 and 3 on the board.
  • Lastly, have another student complete the 4th section.

Encourage students to use this model when studying outside of the SI-PASS session.
