Abstract

  • © 2015, Universidad del Zulia. All rights reserved. A study is presented on the way in which linguistic and extra-linguistic resources are important for the emergence of fundamental mathematical results on a Calculus course. An educational environment is designed mediated by the SimCalc software, which addresses graphical results of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus through the context of linear motion. Amixed research method is used to develop an analysis of speech and gestures to show the process of appropriation by the students. An assessment instrument is designed and implemented in order to evaluate the transfer of such appropriation.
