The Role of One Teacher's Mathematical Conceptions in His Implementation of a Reform-Oriented Functions Unit.
Lloyd, Gwen; Wilson, Melvin R.
This paper links the conceptions of an experienced high school mathematics teacher to aspects of his first implementation of a reform-oriented curriculum during a 6-week functions unit. The teacher exhibited comprehensive understandings of the function concept, dominated by graphical representations and a covariation description of function. These features contributed to classroom emphases on the use of multiple representations to understand dependence patterns in data and characteristics of different types of relationships. (Author)
