126- Beyond Rise-over-Run: A Design Experiment and Learning Trajectory for Slope

Wednesday, April 9, 2014: 12:30 PM-1:00 PM
Room 215 ( Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Frederick Peck

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.
