Geometric Representation
Pronunciation: /ˌdʒi.əˈmɛt.rɪk ˌrɛp.rɪ.zɛnˈteɪ.ʃən/ Explain
A geometric representation is a
representation
that uses
geometry
to illustrate or clarify a mathematical truth.
Figure 1: 2 rows and 3 columns of dots is the same number of dots as 3 rows by two columns of dots 

A geometric representation allows us to visualize mathematical properties. This
visualization makes it easier to understand and remember the property. One
geometric representation you may be familiar with is the representation
of multiplication using rows and columns of dots. In figure 1, the
commutative property of multiplication
is represented with 2 · 3 = 3 · 2.
