MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS FOR SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS VIA THE COMPUTER ALGEBRA SYSTEM MAPLE

By Dann G. Mallet

Abstract

ABSTRACT. A number of different representational methods exist for presenting the theory of linear equations and associated solution spaces. Discussed in this paper are the findings of a case study where first year undergraduate students were exposed to a new (to the department) method of teaching linear systems which used visual, algebraic and data-based representations constructed using the computer algebra system Maple. Positive and negative impacts on the students are discussed as they apply to representational translation and perceived learning

Topics: Multiple Representations, Linear Algebra, Maple. BACKGROUND As Taylor (in Sankey, 2005) has pointed out, traditional methods of teaching (and
