Student Errors in Dynamic Mathematical Environments
Brown, Molly; Bossé, Michael J.; Chandler, Kayla
International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, May 2016
This study investigates the nature of student errors in the context of problem solving and Dynamic Math Environments. This led to the development of the Problem Solving Action Identification Framework; this framework captures and defines all activities and errors associated with problem solving in a dynamic math environment. Found are three different types of errors: domain (mathematics, technology, and problem solving), process (interpretation, activity, and evaluation), and interaction (syntactic and semantic). Implications from this study address problem solving in general.
