This monograph serves as a resource book on the Model Method.
The main purpose is to make explicit how the Model Method is used to develop students' understanding of fundamental mathematics concepts and
proficiency in solving basic mathematics word problems. Through the construction of a pictorial model to represent the known and unknown
quantities and their relationships in a problem, students gain better understanding of the problem and develop their abilities in mathematical thinking
and problem solving. This will provide a strong foundation for the learning of mathematics from the primary to secondary levels and beyond.
The monograph is organized into seven chapters.

This book is a valuable resource for anyone wanting a general overview of the Model Method that includes examples covering all levels of Primary Mathematics for grades 3 - 6, where it is primarily used, as well as ideas for how to use the Model Method to help students visualize and conceptualize a problem so that they can formulate an algebraic expression to solve it.
