CAS : student engagement requires unambiguous advantages
We report on a group of undergraduate students who, despite carefully planned lectures and CAS availability for all learning and assessment tasks, failed to capitalize on its affordances. Expand
Revealing educationally critical aspects of rate
Rate (of change) is an important but complicated mathematical concept describing a ratio comparing two different numeric, measurable quantities. Research referring to students’ difficulties with this… Expand
An ‘Emergent Model’ for Rate of Change
Does speed provide a ‘model for’ rate of change in other contexts? Does JavaMathWorlds (JMW), animated simulation software, assist in the development of the ‘model for’ rate of change? This project… Expand
Developing Primary Pre-Service Teachers' Mathematical Content Knowledge during Practicum Teaching.
While it is recognised that a teachers' mathematical content knowledge (MCK) is crucial for teaching, less is known about when different categories of MCK develop during teacher education. This paper… Expand
What is rate? Does context or representation matter?
Rate is an important, but difficult, mathematical concept. Despite more than 20 years of research, especially with calculus students, difficulties are reported with this concept. This paper reports… Expand
Revealing Conceptions of Rate of Change
Rate of change is an important mathematical concept. Research referring to students’ difficulties with this concept spans more than twenty years. Research suggests that problems experienced by some… Expand
Student perspectives of Web-based mathematics
Abstract This paper presents the results of a survey conducted with students ( N = 97) whose teachers have used the Web in their mathematics classes. Their responses to the use of the Internet for… Expand
Classroom Animals Provide More Than Just Science Education
Keeping classroom animals is a common practice in many classrooms. Their value for learning is often seen narrowly as the potential to involve children in learning biological science. They also… Expand
