Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Darryl J. Ozimek, Paula V. Engelhardt, Andrew G. Bennett, and N. Sanjay Rebello
We examined the extent to which students retained and transferred various concepts from trigonometry to physics at the introductory college level. Online trigonometry homework assignments and pre- and post-instruction surveys in physics were our sources of data. Transfer was measured from a traditional as well as two contemporary perspectives. Students seemed to have more difficulty retaining and transferring the unit circle concept compared to others. Transfer was more evident when measured from some contemporary perspectives rather than a traditional perspective.
