More than Multiplication in a 12 x 12 Multiplication Table
Gierdien, Faaiz
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n5 p662-669 2009
This note presents demonstrations of mathematics that emerges when problems are posed with respect to a combined 12 x 12 multiplication table showing multiplier and multiplicand. Through processes such as recognizing and extending patterns, specializing and generalizing particular functional relationships between the diagonal and row sequences are compressed. Insights obtained from the various methods can be used to deepen teachers' and students' understandings of possible ways to bridge arithmetic and algebra. (Contains 9 figures.)
