An Examination of High School Students' Online Engagement in Mathematics Problems
Lim, Woong; Son, Ji-Won; Gregson, Susan; Kim, Jihye
International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, v13 n2 Article 1 p1-15 2018
This article examines high school students' engagement in a set of trigonometry problems. Students completed this task independently in an online environment with access to Internet search engines, online textbooks, and YouTube videos. The findings imply that students have the resourcefulness to solve procedure-based mathematics problems in an online environment without formal instruction. This article suggests that self-directed online learning could be more effective for solving procedure-based problems than multi-step problems. Moreover, to be successful in online learning environments, students may need training to improve keyword searching skill and their ability to utilize various online learning tools.
