Marzano (2001) found that nonlinguistic strategies move student achievement.  This is exactly aligned with the mathematical practices – using models, representations, sketches, drawings, diagrams and pictures to name a few.

Math Sketches

Flip Books

Tape/Bar Diagrams

Math Mind Maps

Thinking Math Maps
