`Representing quantitative relations mathematically is an important goal of mathematics education. Moreover, representations may also support studentsŐ learning of mathematics. Japanese elementary mathematics textbooks often utilize sophisticated, and often unfamiliar to US students and teachers, diagrams to support studentsŐ learning. In this presentation, I will discuss the results from a content analysis of two most widely used elementary mathematics textbook series in Japan.`
