Msomi, Alfred Mvunyelwa; Bansilal, Sarah – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Laplace transform (LT) is an essential mathematical tool for solving linear ordinary differential equations (ODE) with boundary values, by transforming differential equation into algebraic equations which are easier to manipulate. In this article, we analyse the errors students make and misconceptions they have in solving linear ODE using LT…

Hurdle, Zachariah Benton; Mogilski, Wiktor – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
We conducted a quantitative analysis to determine how the prerequisite path of students taking calculus I impacts their grade performance. We began by investigating the performance of students that took college algebra and trigonometry versus those that took pre-calculus ahead of their credit-bearing calculus I attempt. We concluded that there was…

Tejeda, Santa; Dominguez, Angeles – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Understanding a graph in pairs, in a productive way, improves the comprehension of a concept. In this research, we had 2 objectives: 1) to delve deep into the behavior of 15 pairs of remedial physics students when solving a problem with a graph of velocity, 2) to understand the interchange of personal meanings during their interactions. We posed…
