Visualizing Polynomial Functions: New Insights from an Old Method in a New Medium.
Dugdale, Sharon; And Others
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v11 n2 p123-41 1992
Describes and illustrates the Monomial Sums Approach, a graphical learning strategy, facilitated by microcomputer capabilities that allow easy manipulation and exploration of graphical representations of polynomial functions. Reduces emphasis on memorized rules in favor of qualitative understanding of functional behavior, visualization of functional relationships, and graphical investigation of mathematical concepts.
