The visual side to numeracy : Students’ sensemaking with graphics
Administrators only | Request a copy from author
To be numerate in contemporary society, all individuals need to make sense of the graphical aspects of mathematics. Various graphics are used as a means of communication of mathematical ideas and also as tools for thinking about these ideas. This paper describes the different types of graphics(e.g., maps, charts, number lines, graphs)used in primary mathematics and suggests ways teachers can develop students’ability to interpret them.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
