 Sets of, rows of, jumps of: verbing multiplication


Building from the concept of verbing mathematics as a culturally consistent and enabling mathematics education practice for Mi’kmaw learners, the authors present an elementary multiplication lesson affectionately named “Sets of, Rows of, Jumps of”. Through examination of this specific set of tasks emerging notions of structuring, play, and collective learning are discussed. Readers are invited to share responses.
