Santos, Manuel; Aguero, Evelyn; Borbon, Alexander; Paez, Cristhian
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v4 p119-126
Can textbook exercises be transformed into problem solving activities that encourage students to develop mathematical thinking? This study documents what high school students showed when they were explicitly asked to use technological tools to examine and solve a routine problem from different angles or perspectives. In this process, students dealt with several representations that were important to analyze and quantify concepts of variation or change attached to the problem, in terms of models of solutions.
