A simulation of the Bar Model method
In this task, you will be presented with an example Bar Model task. You are asked to try to model, draw or simulate the example yourself.
First consider this example Bar Model task. It comes from p.63 of the Year 6 Max Maths book.
Model the task with a representation you would like to try yourself. For example, you might have some concrete materials such as Lego, or you might like to draw something. Or you could experiment with this online tool in geogebra.
NOTE: you can open the tool in a new window by right-clicking on the link and selecting ‘open in new window’.
Finally, maybe you can find your own Bar Model task. Model it as well!
