Developing Mathematical Understanding through Multiple Representations
April 2008, Volume 13, Issue 8, Page 438
Synthesizes research on multiple representations to extrapolate ideas that are directly related to the classroom. It then discusses strategies that will help teachers incorporate the use of multiple representations in their classrooms. Includes several thought provoking problems to stimulate students to consider visual representations as a viable problem solving strategy. The problems and strategies presented in the article are classroom tested and ready for implementation.
