Problem solving as a basis for reform in curriculum and instruction: The case of mathematicsEducational Researcher, 25 (May), 12-21**EXAMPLE**Balanced Math Framework Measurement**C.R.A. Model**Representational Concrete Abstract**Closure**What- Representations of key concepts and relevant connections . Opportunity to use math vocabulary/word wall in context. Students articulate their thinking including pictures and words. Why - Writing can assist math instruction in two ways - by helping children make sense of mathematics and by helping teachers understand what children are learning. When – Typically, this occurs at the conclusion of math class. It should take only a few minutes of the lesson.
