The Functions Group

This project explores aspects of students' understandings of the mathematical concepts. Among the issues explored are:

  • What is the nature of mathematical understanding, and how can it best be characterized?

  • How do students understand various mathematical representations

  • What intuitive understandings might help students come to grips with the mathematical notion of functions, especially linear functions?

  • How can we better understand teaching and learning, in order to help students engage effectively with rich mathematics?
