This empirical study investigated how varied instantiations of mathematical representations influenced learners' strategies. The analysis took into account gazes, utterances, actions and writings of 18 learners performing 3 tasks using static, dynamic, and interactive instantiations. Results show a variation in frequencies of strategies that the participants of the study employed for using multiple representations. This indicates that varying instantiations of multiple representations influences learners' strategies.
