Description of Presentation:
Student understanding of slope is often formulaic. To explore how students learn slope in a more robust way, we conducted a design experiment to refine a learning trajectory for slope organized around rates of change. I will present the learning trajectory and the ways that student learning was mediated by context and cultural tools.
