Yes Jeanette, those sentence frames are wonderful. It clearly shows Vanessa’s explanation:
Additive uses “more than/less than”
Multiplicative thinking uses “times” and “of” because we are relating 2 objects to the size of one another.
When I set up enrichment tasks for the students at my school, I’ll be sure to include sentence frames like these. It is so important to develop their specific math vocabulary as early as possible.
