Pupils' use of visual mathematical problem solving strategies

Abstract

An exploration of how the Y1 children used visualisation to understand and work through activities involving telling the time to the hour. The Year 1 class had been exposed to some formal mathematical methods, but were encouraged to explore and present problems in their own ways during carpet discussions. The aim was to find out whether the children would choose to present their ideas visually if provided with the opportunity and resources with which to do so.
