Microworlds and Direct Manipulation Environments: The Case of Newtonian Mechanics.
Stevenson, Ian
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v27 n1-2 p167-83 2002
Considers transitions from naive realism to formal mathematical modeling, using a Direct Manipulation Environment for Newtonian Mechanics. Highlights include a case study of pre-university students in the United Kingdom; the interplay of mathematical reasoning, modes of interaction with technology, and setting; and comparisons between direct manipulation and interpretations of the microworld notion to aid analysis.
