Middle School Learners' Ontological "Trying-on" of Dimensions: A Phenomenological Investigation
Valentine, Keri Duncan; Kopcha, Theodore J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) (11th, Boulder, CO, Jun 23-27, 2014)
This paper shares findings from a post-intentional phenomenological study aimed at understanding learners' experience investigating space and dimension concepts in a fifth and sixth grade mathematics class. Findings indicate experiences in this study manifest as an ontological "trying-on" of geometric dimensions (e.g., through sight, perception, and motion), leading learners to conjecture about dimensional relationships. The paper discusses implications informing the second iteration of the design-based research project. [This paper was published in: "ICLS 2014 Proceedings," ISLS, p745-752.]
