The shared knowledge of the class versus individual students' knowledge in a course on chaos and fractals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

This study focuses on gaps between the knowledge which functions-as-if-shared
in a class as a collective and the knowledge that is used by each individual
student. We analyze to what extent knowledge and ideas that are shared by the
class community are available to and have been applied by the individual
students. The research is based on data collected in an introductory course on
chaos and fractals. The course included challenging inquiry activities that led
to genuine argumentation, and to the emergence of quite a few new (for the
students) mathematical notions. Initial findings present important gaps. We
investigate to what extent these gaps can be explained by individual students’
problem-solving skills, in heuristics.
