So many great points mentioned here.
I think one of the biggest reasons why manipulatives and visuals are pushed aside after we start entering into multiplicative thinking is because most of us never used those tools when we learned – therefore, we don’t know how to use them in a helpful manner nor do we realize their importance. We have so much work to do as a whole when it comes to developing our own math content knowledge in the upper elementary, middle and high school years. We will get there though if we keep at it!
