Read, Draw, Write

  • RDW or Read, Draw, Write (a Number Sentence and a Statement)

    Mathematicians and teachers suggest a simple process applicable to all grades:

    1) Read.

    2) Draw and Label.

    3) Write a number sentence (equation).

    4) Write a word sentence (statement).

    The more students participate in reasoning through problems with a systematic approach, the more they internalize those behaviors and thought processes.
