Student Modeling of Physical Phenomena as They Derive Integral Formulae: One Way To Reduce Proof Phobia.
Dancis, Jerome
Primus, v11 n1 p124-46 Jun 2001
Students in a freshmen calculus course should become fluent in modeling physical phenomena represented by integrals, in particular geometric formulas for volumes and arc length and physical formulas for work. Describes how to train students to became fluent in such modeling and derivation of standard integral formulas. Indicates that these lessons also greatly reduce students' proof phobias. (Author/ASK)
