Using data maps to analyse students' strategy use in problem solving: A visual technique

Diezmann, Carmel M. (1996) Using data maps to analyse students' strategy use in problem solving: A visual technique. In 19th Annual Conference of Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Melbourne.


Qualitative data analysis has become increasingly important in mathematics education research. However the conceptualisation of the data and the fulfillment of the interactive assumption of qualitative analysis are a concern. An alternative to a linguistic approach to analysis is a visual approach. The visual analysis of data utilises wholistic data displays, referred to as data maps, and employs visual reasoning. The data maps, which are produced using drawing software, can enhance conceptualisation and facilitate the interactive process of analysis.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are 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.
