A geometric representation is a representation that uses geometry to illustrate or clarify a mathematical truth.

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.
