Abstract

This paper presents the findings of one aspect of a study that investigated Grade 3
students’ development of multiplicative thinking. Of particular interest was the extent to which students could successfully perform on tasks relating to different semantic structures and the influence of each structure on their strategy choice. The findings suggest that Grade 3 students are capable of solving problems relating to the different semantic structures and many do so using multiplicative strategies.
