This research project addresses how children in grades K-2 understand concepts associated with functionsâ€”particularly as these concepts relate to different representational tools (e.g., natural language, algebraic notation, tables, and Cartesian coordinate tools). Researchers will study how students are able to coordinate co-varying data and identify and express relationships with such data - particularly examining the connections between their thinking about recursive patterning and co-varying relationships and correspondence relationships.
