Locating Starting Points in Differential Equations: A Realistic Mathematics Education Approach.
Rasmussen, Chris L.; King, Karen D.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v31 n2 p161-72 Mar-Apr 2000
Reports on ongoing developmental research efforts to adapt the instructional design perspective of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) to learning and teaching of collegiate mathematics using differential equations as a specific case. Focuses on the RME design heuristic of guided reinvention as a means to locate the starting point for an instructional sequence and highlights cyclical process instructional design and analysis of student learning.
