Developing mental images to help solve the problem and: Working abstractly with the number property CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Discovering algebraic rules for

expanding Based on an array model for multiplication Ideas adapted from 1. Cyril Quinlan. Analysing teaching/learning strategies for algebra. P 459-464. MERGA 18 (Eighteenth annual CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT conference

of the mathematics education research group of Australasia Darwin 1995). 2. http://www.blackdouglas.com.au One bracket with addition Start with 3 rows of 7 counters

3 7 21 CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Place a straw between two columns What does it now show?

Record it as 3 7 3 2 3 5 CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT How else can you place the straw to show the same thing?

Discuss what this shows: 3 2 3 5 3 5 3 2 CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT How else can you place the straw to show something different?

3 7 3 3 3 4 CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT How many different ways of placing the straw can you find?

How many different ways can you find of writing 37 ? Record

them all. FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT CENTRE Can you find a pattern? What about placing the straw along the row?

3 7 2 7 17 CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Repeat using different numbers with one

straw. Progress to using grids to show the same thing. CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

with rows of counters in columns Use a straw to generate different number properties Repeat for different numbers Generalise number properties with words Extend from counters to grids or arrays

Generalise properties using symbols CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Investigate Two brackets with addition

One bracket with subtraction Two brackets with subtraction

What about these? 19 6 ? 23 16 ? 29 47 ? 129 247 ? CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Questions to consider Is the use of counters necessary? Do students need to cut out grids or is shading of rectangles sufficient? How important is recording? What is the best way of leading into the use of symbols?
