Judy Benjamin presents at RCML 46th Annual Conference
Judy Benjamin, Curriculum and Instruction doctoral student specializing in math education, presented Children's Conveyed Multiplicative Meaning Across Models at the 46th Annual Conference of the Research Council on Mathematics Learning (RCML). The conference took place in Charlotte, North Carolina, February 28 - March 2, 2019.
"Evidence suggests that visual models used to represent multiplication are not always interpreted multiplicatively. This study examined students’ strategies across different models. Findings suggest students will count by 1s when a model illustrates all ones. By contrast, models illustrating composite units elicited a wider variety of strategies for the multiplication tasks," shared Judy.
