DESCRIPTION:Speaker:\n\nKyeong-Hah Roh\, Arizona State University\n\nAbstra
ct:\n\nIn sociolinguistics\, a register refers to a variety of language use
d for a particular purpose or in a particular communicative situation. My r
esearch team has conducted mathematics education research on a special type
of registers\, mathematical registers or registers of mathematics (Pimm\,
1989)\, which is a set of meanings\, together with the words and structures
expressing these meanings in mathematics contexts. In particular\, we foc
used on mathematical language (especially quantifier words) and mathematica
l representations (especially graphical representations) in calculus texts.
In this presentation\, I will illustrate some examples from the studies th
at my research team has conducted on undergraduate studentsâ€™ interpretation
and evaluation of statements in undergraduate calculus texts\, including t
he Intermediate Value Theorem and the Definition of Convergence of a Sequen
ce. This presentation will also include how studentsâ€™ meaning of language a
nd representations used in mathematical texts are similar to/ different fro
m mathematical registers. I will also discuss some practical implications o
f these research to the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics.
