Common Misconceptions – Multiplication and division Children do not understand that division is not commutative and therefore place the numbers in the wrong order Children do not take into account place value when multiplying. Children do not use 0 as a place holder when multiplying by a power of 10. Multiplying by a power of 10 does not just mean “adding a 0”. Common Misconception – Data A pictogram image may not only represent one object Numbers on the scale are not just the numbers in the data. Children read the scales incorrectly leading to incorrect answers. Children let the bars of a bar chart touch for discrete data.
