Transcript of Creative Mathematical Thinking: functions

Student's Motivation
The Process!
We got the subject: Functions!
Students’ difficulties with the notion of function are widely reported and well known. Students have trouble in making the link between different representations of functions: formulas, graphs, diagrams, word descriptions of relationships; in interpreting graphs; in manipulating symbols related to functions such as: f(x), x→ y, sin(x+t), etc. The pedagogical question is, of course, how to cope with all these difficulties in class. And in our case, how to deal with the difficulties using softwares.

We measure the student's productions.

Let's have some fun
before going into
the
boring lecture things!
this is an empty circle (not so empty), just because i wanted it here.

are you not happy?

Deal with it....
Perseverance
Tolerance
La certitude est l'instrument de la démonstration
L'intuition est l'instrument de l'invention
