Intelligent Support for Mathematical Generalisation
£1,257,224, Economic and Social Research Council We are building a pedagogical and technical environment to improve 11-14 year-old students' learning of mathematical generalisations. Our system consists of: sequenced and progressive activities undertaken within a microworld - called the eXpresser - co-designed with teachers to promote the learning of mathematical generalisation among early secondary school students through model-construction an intelligent component, the eGeneraliser, that will provide personalised feedback during the process of model analysis and generalization to students and teachers a second intelligent component, the eCollaborator, that will foster cumulative knowledge construction through the sharing and discussion of models, aiming to assist teachers in developing and sustaining an effective online community. In the latter stages of the project, we will evaluate the environment formatively and summatively, and scale it up from its initial design experiment to a broader group of schools and teachers, so as to form a sustainable learning community.
