Stump, Sheryl L.
School Science and Mathematics, v101 n2 p81-89 Feb 2001
Interviews 22 high school precalculus students to examine their understanding of slope as measure. Indicates that students demonstrated a better understanding of slope in functional situations, but many students had trouble interpreting slope as measure of rate of change. Suggests that instruction should focus on helping students form connections and provide opportunities for students to communicate their understanding. (Contains 32 references.) (Author/ASK)
