A Tool to Use the First Day of Calculus
van Dyke, Frances; White, Alexander
PRIMUS, v14 n3 p213-229 2004
This paper presents an assessment tool which can be used during the first weeks of calculus to measure students' visual thinking skills. We have developed and applied this instrument in classes for the last three years, tabulating results and interviewing students on a regular basis. We discuss our findings and provide hints to using the instrument to identify student weaknesses which, if unattended, can undermine students' understanding of calculus.
