Learners' strategies with multiple representations

San Diego, Jonathan P.; Aczel, James; Hodgson, Barbara and Scanlon, Eileen (2006). Learners' strategies with multiple representations. In: European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) SIG 2 Bi-annual meeting 'Text and graphics comprehension', 30 Aug - 01 Sep 2006, Nottingham, UK.


This empirical study investigated how varied instantiations of mathematical representations influenced learners' strategies. The analysis took into account gazes, utterances, actions and writings of 18 learners performing 3 tasks using static, dynamic, and interactive instantiations. Results show a variation in frequencies of strategies that the participants of the study employed for using multiple representations. This indicates that varying instantiations of multiple representations influences learners' strategies.
