Exploring Representation
  Introduction | Scaling Area | Problem Reflection | Summary | Your Journal


Reflect on each of the following questions and answer the one in light of the content and students you teach. As you make your journal entry, use the material you've just seen and read as a context.

Questions to write and reflect about:
  • In your own problem solving, when and why do you move from one representation to another?
  • How can representation help a learner acquire new knowledge or extend existing knowledge?
  • Do you prefer some representations to others as you work on problems? Why? Do you think your students have similar preferences? Does that have implications for your teaching?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.


Your work will be displayed in a printer-friendly format to enable you to print.

Thanks for writing in your journal. Please keep your entries in whatever format you choose -- you will find them useful for reference later.
