The Role of Representation(s) in Developing Mathematical Understanding.
Pape, Stephen J.; Tchoshanov, Mourat A.
Theory into Practice, v40 n2 p118-27 Spr 2001
Examines insights scholars have gained about representation(s) and how this information can be used to develop students' understanding of mathematics, defining representation(s), discussing differing conceptualizations of representation(s) and the use of representation(s) in mathematics learning, and exploring some implications for classroom practice, including representation(s) in social contexts, representation(s) as cognitive tools, and instructional practice.
