Students' Developments in Solving Data-Handling Ends-in-View Problems.
English, Lyn D.
This paper addresses components of a 3-year longitudinal study in which 9th and 10th grade students in Australia, Canada, and Zambia participated in data-handling programs through networked learning communities. Of interest here are the students' responses to a selection of "ends-in-view" problems, which formed the major part of the data-handling programs. The nature and role of these ends-in-view problems in promoting students' mathematical learning are addressed first. In the second part of the paper, the cognitive and social developments of groups of 9th and 10th grade students as they worked some of the ends-in-view problems are examined. (Author)
