The Contribution of Reasoning to the Utilization of Feedback from Software When Solving Mathematical Problems
Olsson, Jan
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v16 n4 p715-735 Apr 2018
This study investigates how students' reasoning contributes to their utilization of computer-generated feedback. Sixteen 16-year-old students solved a linear function task designed to present a challenge to them using dynamic software, GeoGebra, for assistance. The data were analysed with respect both to character of reasoning and to the use of feedback generated through activities in GeoGebra. The results showed that students who successfully solved the task were engaged in creative reasoning and used feedback extensively.
