Pre-service teachers’ explanations of division by zero and denseness of the number line.

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragKonferensabstractPeer review

Sammanfattning

Students’ beliefs about division by zero and numbers on the number line were
studied through explanations of the concepts in questionnaires and interviews
during their teacher education to become primary school teachers in the years
4–6. The concepts were chosen for students’ proven cognitive challenges in
coping with them, with the aim to add to the existing knowledge in terms of
specific and general explanation types. General and specific parts of the students’ concept images were contradictory in several cases and the examples
used for explaining were often based on other mathematical structures than
the ones explained, e.g. 2/1 instead of 2/0 or a finite decimal recitation instead
of an infinite one.
