Rasmussen, Chris – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016

A challenge in mathematics education research is to coordinate different analyses to develop a more comprehensive account of teaching and learning. I contribute to these efforts by expanding the constructs in Cobb and Yackel's (1996) interpretive framework that allow for coordinating social and individual perspectives. This expansion involves four…

Czocher, Jennifer – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2011

Lack of satisfaction with the quality of the mathematical knowledge of non-mathematics majors has led to the design of new curricular materials. In this study, a mixed methods explanatory design was used to compare the performances of two groups of engineering majors enrolled in two courses on differential equations and investigate their written…

Nakamura, Yasuyuki; Yasutake, Koichi; Yamakawa, Osamu – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2012

There are some mathematical learning models of collaborative learning, with which we can learn how students obtain knowledge and we expect to design effective education. We put together those models and classify into three categories; model by differential equations, so-called Ising spin and a stochastic process equation. Some of the models do not…

Whitehead, Karen; Rasmussen, Chris – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2003

This paper reports on research conducted to understand undergraduate students' ways of reasoning about systems of differential equations (SDEs). As part of a semester long classroom teaching experiment in a first course in differential equations, we conducted task-based interviews with six students after their study of first order differential…

Kwon, Oh Nam – 2002

The undergraduate curriculum in differential equations has undergone important changes in favor of the visual and numerical aspects of the course primarily because of recent technological advances. Yet, research findings that have analyzed students' thinking and understanding in a reformed setting are still lacking. This paper discusses an ongoing…

Habre, Samer – 2002

In an attempt to promote the development of understanding over rote memorization, writing in mathematics has received increased attention in recent years. In Calculus, the Rule of Three (based on communicating ideas thorough algebraic, graphical and numerical means) has been replaced by the Rule of Four in which writing plays a central role.…

Rasmussen, Chris L. – 1998

This study investigated six students' understandings of and difficulties with qualitative and numerical methods for analyzing differential equations. From an individual cognitive perspective, the obstacles found to influence the development of students' understandings included the function dilemma, the tendency to overgeneralize, interference from…

Balderas Puga, Angel – 2001

In this paper are described some features of the intensive use of math software, primarily DERIVE, in the context of modeling in an introductory university course in differential equations. Different aspects are detailed: changes in the curriculum that included not only course contents, but also the sequence of introduction to various topics and…

Bauer, Connie L.; And Others – 1980

A theory of group interaction with a focus on the trajectories of relevant variables as they change over time is developed in this paper. The four major components of the group interaction process (communication, conflict, involvement, and centralization) are presented and conceptually defined, and the nature of their interdependence is discussed.…

Slivina, Natalia A.; Krivosheev, Anatoly O.; Fomin, Sergey S. – 1998

This paper presents a CD-ROM computer tutorial titled "Higher Mathematics," that contains 17 educational mathematical programs and is intended for use in Russian university engineering education. The first section introduces the courseware climate in Russia and outlines problems with commercially available universal mathematical…

Schoonover, Marsha; Peterson, John C. – 1993

As part of an effort to reform calculus instruction practices, Chattanooga State Technical Community College (CSTCC), in Tennessee, participates in two consortia. One consortium, the Chattanooga Calculus Consortium (CCC), is headed by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and involves one other four-year institution and three Chattanooga-area…

Blass, Barbara; And Others – 1992

In an effort to increase faculty use and knowledge of computers, Oakland Community College (OCC), in Michigan, developed a Summer Technology Institute (STI), and a Computer Technology Grants (CTG) project beginning in 1989. The STI involved 3-day forums during summers 1989, 1990, and 1991 to expose faculty to hardware and software applications.…

Toutkoushian, Robert K. – 1994

This paper examines issues involved in selecting a strategy that could be carried out by institutions to achieve salary equity between male and female faculty. It compares potential strategies based on equity of salary adjustments, political constraints, cost to the institution, and whether the plan removes inequities. Steps in determining…

Gormley, Tyrone D. – 1978

Based on the assumption that each student learns in a unique way, this paper outlines the factors to be considered before selecting the methods of instruction for particular mathematics courses and their students. The advantages and disadvantages of the lecture/textbook and question/answer method, individualized instruction, self-pacing,…

Curnutt, Larry – 1984

Preparing students for transfer to four-year colleges remains a significant part of the mission of most community college mathematicians. For some 30 years, calculus has been synonymous with entry-level college mathematics. Recent educational and technological changes, however, demand that the definition of college-level work in mathematics be…
