I think Vanessa’s definition is spot on.
I’m wondering now…my fourth-grade students can add and subtract but do not understand multiplicative thinking. When I say something is 10 times as big as or 1/10 the size of, they do not understand what I am saying. I’m thinking I need to use this visual and we need to back up a little. Thanks!
