Abstract

One area of research into how students come to understand some aspects of mathematics has focused on the construction of different knowledge types and their connections. Structural knowledge (that is, connected schema) should be the endpoint of formal instruction. This paper provides some spreadsheet activities designed to promote the various types of knowledge.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
