Algebra 1 Students’ Ability To Relate The Definition Of A Function To Its Representations, Sarah A. Thomson

#### Algebra 1 Students’ Ability To Relate The Definition Of A Function To Its Representations, Sarah A. Thomson

*Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations*

One hundred high school Algebra students from a southern California school participated in this study to provide information on students’ ability to relate the definition of function to its representations. The goals of the study were (1) to explore the extent to which students are able to distinguish between representations of functions/non-functions; (2) to compare students’ ability to distinguish between familiar/unfamiliar representations of functions/non-functions; (3) to explore the extent to which students are able to apply the definition of function to verify function representations; and (4) to explore the extent to which students are able to provide an adequate definition …

Use Of Learning-Logs In High School Pre-Algebra Classes To Improve Mastery Of Rational Numbers And Linear Equations For High-Risk Minority Students, Peter August Sehlmeyer

#### Use Of Learning-Logs In High School Pre-Algebra Classes To Improve Mastery Of Rational Numbers And Linear Equations For High-Risk Minority Students, Peter August Sehlmeyer

*Theses Digitization Project*

The purpose of this study was to determine whether there was a relationship in the use of learning-logs to traditional or current math instruction in secondary school pre-algebra classes to improve the mastery of single-variable equations by high-risk minority students.
