Sense-able Combinatorics: Students' Use of Personal Representations

Lynn Tarlow 

April 2008, Volume 13, Issue 8, Page 484

Abstract:
A mathematics session in which students, instead of recalling and applying an algorithm, developed meaningful representation of a challenging combinatorics task and then found solution. The session analysis may provide insights into how teachers can support students' development of combinatorial reasoning.
