I agree that the above discussion is helpful. As I have worked with struggling students, I could see that they were using additive thinking but wasn’t sure how to direct them into multiplicative thinking. Now I can direct them by helping them use relational words such as “of” and “times,” and of course I will take them back to visual models.
