RATIONAL NUMBER AND PROPORTIONAL REASONING: USING INTENSIVE QUANTITIES TO PROMOTE ACHIEVEMENT IN MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE

Abstract:

Abstract: Student mastery of rational number and proportional reasoning is a recognized challenge, yet supporting mastery is central within mathematics and science. This paper focuses on a 4-lesson teaching programme which was designed to foster mastery in the context of intensive quantities. Intensive quantities such as density, speed and temperature depend upon proportional relations, require rational number for their representation and are relevant to science. Two versions of the teaching ...
