An Investigation Of Secondary Teachers’ Knowledge Of Rate Of Change In The Context Of Teaching A StandardsBased Curriculum, Jihwa Noh
Dissertations
This study investigated teachers' mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge with respect to rate of change in the context of teaching a Standardsbased high school mathematics curriculum that emphasizes rate of change as a central theme, the CorePlus Mathematics Project (CPMP) materials. A framework was designed to provide a comprehensive guide for analyzing different aspects of rate of change knowledge incorporating existing frameworks relative to rate of change, NCTM recommendations described in Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics andPrinciples and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000), and research related to pedagogical understanding of rate of change.
