Visualizing Higher Level Mathematical Concepts Using Computer Graphics

  title={Visualizing Higher Level Mathematical Concepts Using Computer Graphics},
  author={David Tall and G. W. Sheath},
The computer is going to revolutionize mathematical education, not least with its ability to calculate quickly and display moving graphics. These facilities have been utilized in interactive programs to demonstrate the ideas in differentiation and integration, evolving new dynamic concept images. Theoretical background The work described in this paper is the result of a happy accident of history. Over a number of years mathematics educators have studied the concept imagery generated by students… 
Dynamic visualization in advanced undergraduate courses
The advent of inexpensive computing technology has dramatically changed the way many mathematicians do mathematics, and the way many students and teachers learn and teach mathematics. This is an

Lois, Alejandro* & Milevicich, Liliana* Universidad Tecnológica Nacional (Argentina) There is still a tendency to see that mathematics is not visual. At University education, it ́s evident in several
An index to measure the ability of first year science students to transfer mathematics
This project aimed to quantitatively measure the ability of first year science students to transfer their mathematical skills and knowledge to a physical context. An instrument used in earlier
Students' Difficulties in Calculus Plenary presentation in Working Group 3, ICME, Québec, August 1992
1. informal calculus – informal ideas of rate of change and the rules of differentiation with integration as the inverse process, with calculating areas, volumes etc. as applications of integration
Functions and Calculus
This chapter is concerned with the changing perceptions of functions and calculus in recent years, both in terms of research into cognitive development of concepts and curriculum developments using

The blancmange function: Continuous everywhere but differentiable nowhere
The aim here is to give a refined conceptual explanation of continuity and differentiation which are formally correct and have a suitable pictorial interpretation of the blancmange function.
Concept image and concept definition in mathematics with particular reference to limits and continuity
The concept image consists of all the cognitive structure in the individual's mind that is associated with a given concept. This may not be globally coherent and may have aspects which are quite
Conflicts in the Learning of Real Numbers and Limits.
The majority of students thought that 0.999 . . . was less than one. It may be that a few students had been taught using infinitesimal concepts, or that the phrase “just less than one” had
