Chapter 9: Supporting Focused and Cohesive Curricula through Visual Representations: An Example from Japanese Textbooks. Tad Watanabe (Kennesaw State University), Akihiko Takahashi (DePaul University), and Makoto Yoshida (William Paterson University) examine how Japanese elementary-level mathematics textbooks use pictorial representations across grade levels. This analysis, in turn, generates ideas about how to use visual representations to support a focused and coherent curriculum.
