**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 F^{n}, and hence recover a matrix **representation** with entries in the field F.
