Using Data-Collection Devices to Enhance Students' Understanding

This article examines four areas of difficulty students have with graphing and modeling. The four areas are identified as connecting graphs with physical concepts, connecting graphs with the real world, transitioning between graphs and physical events, and building graphical concepts through student discourse. The article looks at studentsí misconceptions and the role of technology in helping to form accurate graphical concepts. This article could be used in conjunction with the readings from section IV.
