tandfonline.com – Lifting the understanding of trigonometric limits from procedural towards conceptual

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”:

The purpose of this paper is to follow the reasoning of high school students when asked to explain the standard trigonometric limit

limθ0sinθθ=1

. An observational study was conducted in four different phases in order to investigate if visualization, by means of an interactive technology environment (Geogebra), can contribute in lifting high school students’ understanding from a mere procedural understanding to a combination of conceptual and procedural understanding. The obtained results confirm that the students were able to show a conceptual understanding only after using the digital interactive tool. Through comparing, exploring and self-explaining combined with the use of the interactive tool, the students managed to link different concepts together. The students were able to see and interpret the reason making the angle

θ

and

sinθ

relate under certain conditions, thus leading to the standard trigonometric limit

limθ0sinθθ=1

.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
