Multiple representations is something that’s actually on the rubrics we use to assess in math class. We encourage visual, algebraic, numeric, and verbal representations in the process of problem solving, and especially in the act of communicating reasoning. Students aren’t always used to doing this, but when they get into it, we see some innovative, novel ways of representing problems, and of connecting those representations together. Being able to make these connections makes the students better communicators, reasoners, and problem solvers in general.
