Examining Students’ Variational Reasoning in Differential Equations

Examining Students’ Variational Reasoning in Differential Equations

Uncategorized
Steven Jones recently published an article titled “Examining Students’ Variational Reasoning in Differential Equations” in the Journal of Mathematical Behavior. Steven has answered a few questions about this article below:  Who were your co-authors on this article? George E. Kuster, Christopher Newport University Who would you say is the target audience for this article? Mathematics education researchers and undergraduate mathematics instructors What is the big problem you hoped to address with this article? Reasoning and modelling with differential equations requires significant cognitive effort and is not trivial to learn to do. We wanted to know what role variational reasoning played in students' understandings of differential equations. What are some of the key ideas in the article? 1. While students can think of a derivative as a rate of change or…

Dawn Teuscher recently published an article titled “Conceptualizing Curricular Reasoning: A Framework for Examining Mathematics Teachers’ Curricular Decisions” in the Journal  Investigations in Mathematics Learning. Dawn has answered a few questions about this article below:  Who were your co-authors on this article? Shannon Dingman from the University of Arkansas, Travis Olson from University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Lisa Kasmer from Grand Valley State University. Who would you say is the target audience for this article? Teacher educators. What is the big problem you hoped to address with this article? Teachers' reason differently when making decisions as they plan and implement mathematics lessons in their classroom. We propose that teachers need to be thinking about the mathematics curriculum, the students, the mathematics and their own understanding of the concepts to…
