"What in the world?" animated worlds in multivariable modeling with motion chart graph arguments

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


This poster presents part of a design study that engaged prospective secondary mathematics teachers in multivariable modeling practices to support learning about critical mathematics and statistical literacies. Student pairs constructed graph arguments about global development using an online, dynamic graphing tool (motion chart). Interaction analysis of sequences of student trouble suggests that animating representing and represented worlds and laminating historical narratives to the mathematical display encouraged success in the activity.
