Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Dyan L. Jones and Reni B. Roseman
Presented is a subsection of a larger project to understand and facilitate students' use of mathematics when solving physics problems. Specifically, this study is an examination of how students group/pair problems in math and physics. The results show that whether students examine surface or structure is in part dependent on context.
