Developing Student Understanding: Contextualizing Calculus Concepts.
Schwalbach, Eileen M.; Dosemagen, Debra M.
School Science and Mathematics, v100 n2 p90-98 Feb 2000
Explores the practice of one high school teacher who provided students with concrete examples from their physics class to give them a contextually rich environment in which to explore the abstractions of calculus. Indicates that students discovered connections between the physics concepts of position, velocity, and acceleration and the calculus concepts of function, derivative, and antiderivative.
