Bringing Reality into Calculus Classrooms: Mathematizing a Real-life Problem Simulated in a Virtual Environment
Keywords:Calculus, Realistic Mathematics Education, Virtual Environment
The study explores how students, who had completed the AP calculus course, mathematized the optimal navigation real-life problem simulated in the Second Life Virtual Environment. The particular research interest was to investigate whether/how studentsâ?? empirical activity in VE influences the way of their mathematizing.
