Students' concept development of limits

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in bookpeer-review


Students’ learning developments of limits were studied in a calculus course. Their actions, such as problem solving and reasoning, were considered traces of their mental representations of concepts and were used to describe the developments during a semester. Several students went through the course with a vague conception of limits which in some cases was wrong. A higher awareness about their mental representations’ reliability is required.
