124- What We Talk About When We Talk About Logs

Wednesday, April 9, 2014: 8:30 AM-9:45 AM
Room 212 ( Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Michael K. Weiss
Michael Morissette

Description of Presentation:

We demonstrate three pilot instruments for studying how students and teachers conceive of, operate with, and interact around the teaching of logarithms in the secondary advanced algebra or algebra 2 course. Participants will discuss the roles that formal properties of logarithms do or do not play in classroom teaching and student thinking.
