# What are mathematical representations?

As most commonly interpreted in education, mathematical representations are visible or tangible productions – such as diagrams, number lines, graphs, arrangements of concrete objects or manipulatives, physical models, mathematical expressions, formulas and equations, or depictions on the screen of a computer or

Also asked, how can mathematical ideas be represented?

Representations help organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas. Representations help solve problems. Mathematical ideas are represented externally and internally. Mathematical ideas are represented with object and actions with those objects.

Also, what does representation mean to you? Representation is the act of speaking on someone's behalf, or depicting or portraying something. When a lawyer acts on behalf of a client, this is an example of representation. When you make a drawing of your mother that is meant to look like her, this is an example of a representation of your mother.

Thereof, what is multiple representations in math?

Multiple representations (mathematics education) Multiple representations include graphs and diagrams, tables and grids, formulas, symbols, words, gestures, software code, videos, concrete models, physical and virtual manipulatives, pictures, and sounds. Representations are thinking tools for doing mathematics.

What is a representation space?

The vector space V is called the representation space of φ and its dimension (if finite) is called the dimension of the representation (sometimes degree, as in). When V is of finite dimension n, one can choose a basis for V to identify V with Fn, and hence recover a matrix representation with entries in the field F.
