This paper presents the results of a study of the structural development of young students' drawings of arrays, and in particular, the significance of using lines instead of drawing individual squares. Students' array drawings were classified on basis of numerical properties, and perceived structural similarities that reflected the spatial properties of arrays. The relationship between these two aspects was investigated and a sequence for the development of array structure is postulated. (Contains 4 figures.) [For complete proceedings, see ED489538.]
