Using Manipulatives in Mathematical Problem Solving: A Performance-Based Analysis
The Mathematics Enthusiast
This article explores problem solving in elementary classrooms while focusing on how children use (perform tasks) manipulatives and/or tools in problem solving while working on mathematical tasks. Ways for teachers to assess children's learning through performance-based tool (manipulative) use will also be examined and suggested. Current research reveals that teachers need to teach and assess children's mathematical knowledge in ways that will allow them to show (perform) what they reallydoi:10.54870/1551-3440.1049 fatcat:zxtur3s7vzfsdmzhxtlefogquy
