  • Analyzing Students' Use of Graphic Representations: Determining Misconceptions and Error Patterns for Instruction

    Amy Scheuermann; Delinda van Garderen
    Students are often told to use representations to solve mathematics problems, yet it may be a hindrance for many. This article contains an approach, the Graphic Representational Analysis Process, that teachers can use to analyze representations and focus future instruction. Includes two case studies and several examples of good and bad graphic representations.
