Gonzalez, Dario A. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
I discuss how three preservice mathematics teachers' (PSTs') covariational reasoning supported the mathematization of a simple energy balance model (EBM) for global warming, and how such mathematization shaped PSTs' understanding of the link CO2 pollution and global warming. I use Thompson & Carlson's (2017) levels of covariational reasoning…
