Abstract

The capacity to recognise, represent, and reason about relationships between differentquantities, that is, to think multiplicatively, has long been recognised as critical to success inschool mathematics in the middle years and beyond. Building on recent research that founda strong link between multiplicative thinking and algebraic, geometrical, and statisticalreasoning, this paper will describe the development and validation of two new assessmentoptions for multiplicative thinking and discuss the significance of this for the teaching andlearning of mathematics in the middle years of schooling.
