The student's strategy of making a diagram of six gingerbread men and 12 raisin eyes works to solve the problem. The student indicates a correct answer, "12" and states, "See, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 raisins for the eyes," in scribing.
The student has a systematic approach and the diagram supports her/his thinking.
The student correctly uses the mathematical terms diagram, key, more than.

The student's diagram is appropriate and accurate. A key is provided for the gingerbread men, and the raisins are defined in the scribing
