Images of Rate and Operational Understanding of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Thompson, Patrick W.
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v26 n2-3 p229-74 Mar 1994
Discusses a teaching experiment with (n=19) senior and graduate mathematics students. Analysis suggests that students' difficulties with the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus stem from impoverished concepts of rate of change and from poorly developed and coordinated images of functional covariation and multiplicatively constructed quantities.
