Representing Multiplication
Harries, Tony; Barmby, Patrick
Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, n206 p37-41 Jan 2008
In this study, the authors wish to explore the use of visual representations in facilitating the understanding of multiplication. In doing so, they examine the different aspects of multiplication that they can access through different representations. In addition, they draw on a study that they have been carrying out looking at pupils' actual use of one of the representations--the array. By bringing together their theoretical views and actual experiences in the classroom, the authors put forward suggestions for teaching multiplication and also future directions for research. (Contains 8 figures.)
