'There's more than meets the eye': analysing verbal protocols, gazes and sketches on external mathematical representations

By Jonathan San Diego, James Aczel, Barbara Hodgson and Eileen Scanlon

Abstract

When learners are asked to verbalise their thoughts about multiple mathematical representations, some researchers are left to analyse utterances based on video records of activity which may have ambiguous signifiers. They are also faced with post hoc analysis of paper-based worksheets, in which temporal order has to be guessed. In this paper, attempts to minimise such methodological problems by means of recent technologies such as eye-tracking, tablet PC screen capture, digital video cameras and the latest video analysis tools are illustrated in the context of a study of the effect of varying representational instantiations on learners' problem-solving strategies
