In this presentation, we will explore our experiences with mental images and mathematics. When presented with a mathematics task, what occurs in our minds? Images often rush to the forefront of our minds or they are noticeably absent. These images contain our perceived knowledge of the past, intertwined with the present, affecting our view of the future. How are these images used to explore, comprehend, and solve problems? What contributes to their growth? Could visualization play a role in fostering the growth of images in order to contribute to mathematical understanding? These are some of the ideas we will be pondering in our session. We will also be exploring a classroom-tested elementary grade task that fosters the use of visualization.
