Abstract [en]

The present study investigates how technology assisted and designed teaching influences engineering students’ understanding of the connection between the graph of a function and its derivatives. An engineering student group (n = 27) was taught with the assistance of GeoGebra while a control group (n =20) was taught in a traditional way. The data of the study consist of the documents and photos of the observation of two lectures and the students’ answers to the pre and post tests. In our theoretical framework we discuss the distinction between conceptual and procedural knowledge. When creating the teaching sequences we applied variation theory. In the analysis of the students’ pre and post tests results we applied statistical methods. Our experiment revealed that the GeoGebra-assisted teaching design created more opportunities for students to grasp the connection between a function and its derivatives.
