Shifting from Traditional to Nontraditional Teaching Practices Using Multiple Representations

Robin Rider 

March 2007, Volume 100, Issue 7, Page 494

Abstract:
Algebraic reasoning skills can be enhanced by building connections among symbolic, tabular, and graphical representations. But how do classroom teachers change traditional teaching practices to foster the use of different representational forms? This article explores how I learned to incorporate representational fluency in teaching and assessment. It builds on ideas from classroom practice and advocates making small changes in teaching practices to foster connections between representations.
