The Effects of Multiple Linked Representations on Student Learning in Mathematics.
Ozgun-Koca, S. Asli
This study investigated the effects on student understanding of linear relationships using the linked representation software VideoPoint as compared to using semi-linked representation software. It investigated students' attitudes towards and preferences for mathematical representations--equations, tables, or graphs. An Algebra I class was divided into three groups of students: linked, semi-linked, and control. Findings regarding word problems, interpreting/constructing and reading graphs, solving and constructing equations, reading and constructing tables, and misconceptions were compared. Most of the students indicated that they found the software helpful in learning mathematics. (KHR)
