How Experts Conceptualize Differentials

Abstract: The differential is a symbol found in many mathematical contexts, including notations for differentiation and integration. But even though such notations are common, there can be many interpretations of the purposes or

Kristen Murphy Prospectus


Abstract: Spatial reasoning is required for many topics in undergraduate mathematics; graphing, curve sketching, transformations of functions, manipulation of objects in 3D, etc. Many topics covered in calculus require the student to use some sort of spatial skill to make
