Episode 58 | Skip Counting Bad, Multiplicative Thinking Good

Chris is joined in the studio by two of the AIMS Research Associates and they discuss how children develop the ability to coordinate units. The title of the podcast today is meant to be provocative, not judgmental. We examine some of the evidence they have seen that demonstrates how children can construct their own strategies for coordinating units. The research seems to indicate a linkage between this developmental pathway and stronger algebraic thinking in later years.
