  • A Secondary School student’s understanding of the concept of function – A case study
    Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2003
    Co-Authors: M. Sajka
    Abstract:

    This article is concerned with an average student’s understanding of the notion of function. It presents an analysis of a dialogue held with Kasia, a sixteen-years-old pupil of a general Academic Secondary School. The conversation concentrates on a non-standard problem – a functional equation. The theoretical framework used here is the PROCEPT THEORY formulated by Gray and Tall (1993, 1994).The article diagnoses Kasia’s procept of function revealed during the dialogue. Her difficulties with understanding this notion can be described as based on a very limited procept of function and a misinterpretation of the symbols used in the functional equation. Three kinds of sources of the difficulties are identified:firstly, the intrinsic ambiguities in the mathematical notation, secondly, there stricted context in which some symbols occur in teaching and a limited choice of mathematical tasks at School, and,thirdly, Kasia’s idiosyncratic interpretation of mathematical tasks. Moreover, the paper describes several important changes in understanding of symbols and of the concept of function that took place in the course of the dialogue. This article shows that we can use functional equations as both a research and a didactic tool in mathematics education.

  • a comparison of preferred learning styles between vocational and Academic Secondary School students in egypt
    , 2012
    Co-Authors: Sayed Makhlouf, Maria Martinez Witte, Nafsaniath Fathema, Bayoumi M Dahawy
    Abstract:

    In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the dichotomy of vocational education versus general education. This has become a political pronouncement in many countries and has adopted knowledge and skills as the key focus to improve education at all levels (Oketch, 2007). This article is an extension of a comparative study on learning style and method preference of students from vocational and general (Academic) Secondary Schools. The learning style preferences of (461) students in both vocational and Academic Secondary Schools in Egypt are examined using The Steinbach LS Quiz. As the factor of teaching and learning styles play a major role for the students to maximize performance within the classroom.
