Variation

Variation

Conceptual variation means to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts from multiple perspectives and through a variety of visualisations. Teachers question pupils on what’s the same?  What’s different? Conceptual variation also refers to what something is as well as what it is not.

 

Take a look at an example below. Here, we would be exploring the concept of fractions of a shape. 

What is one half?

What is it not? 

Which of these images show correct fractions shaded? Which do not?

Can you explain why/ why not?
