Connecting Procedural and Conceptual Knowledge of Functions

Jon Davis 

August 2005, Volume 99, Issue 1, Page 36

Abstract:
How teachers can promote both conceptual and procedural knowledge by connecting symbolic manipulation techniques with the real-world, tabular, and graphical representations of a linear function. Functions are used to demonstrate that students' understanding of the meaning of functions through real-world examples and other representations strengthens student ability to perform procedural operations.
