How Do Students Become Successful Mathematicians?
The goal is understanding what numbers mean and how they work together.
This overview is an introduction to this Model. Each LPS Learner Model is a research-driven, holistic representation of all of the critical variables, what we call the Learner Factors, that affect how learners learn. These Factors are the foundation of learner diversity. Scroll up to explore all of the Factors in this model.
To create these Models, we follow a systematic methodology led by our expert LPS researchers. The process is also overseen by an advisory committee of leading content area and learning sciences experts.
