Students' Perceptions of the Completeness Property of the Set of Real Numbers
Berge, Analia
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n2 p217-227 2010
This article presents an exploratory study that gives account of some students' perceptions of the completeness property of the set of real numbers. Students taking three undergraduate correlative courses in Calculus and Analysis answered a written questionnaire; their scripts are analysed trying to understand how operational is the notion of completeness for them and to what extent they take this notion for granted. (Contains 3 tables and 2 notes.)
