Laying the Foundation for Multiplicative Thinking in Year 2
Watson, Kelly
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v21 n3 p16-20 2016
In order for students to move from using concrete materials to using mental strategies and from additive to multiplicative thinking, the use of arrays and visualisation is pivotal. This article describes a lesson in which students are taken through a Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) approach that involves noticing structure, using strategies and visualisation.
