Students' Ways of Knowing and Learning Mathematics and Their Ways of Interacting with Advanced Calculators
Tan, Hazel
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
In this paper, the relationships between students' beliefs about knowing and learning mathematics, and how they engage with calculators, are investigated. An online survey was conducted for 964 Singaporean and 176 Victorian senior secondary students. Students' "connected knowing-deep approach" conception of mathematics was found to be associated with their use of "calculators as collaborator," and their "separate knowing-surface approach" conception of mathematics was associated with use of "calculators as master." Gender differences in students' beliefs were also found.
