A large number of students enter college each year not knowing basic mathematical concepts such as fractions, decimals and percents. Although many students take mathematics for twelve years in elementary school, junior high school and high school they lack the fundamental processes necessary to be successful in college level mathematics courses. In this paper a teaching model is outlined that will benefit those students in the learning of mathematics and mathematical processes. This model is based on the tenets of constructivism as put forth by von Glasersfeld (1983).
