Representations and Translations embedded within Interactive Diagrams
Abstract: This study attempts to understand the nature of representations within an Interactive Diagram (mathlet). The representations of an ID will be analyzed with respect to the translations required. The possible effects of different types of translations versus, how these translations work will be targeted. An example applet from the NCTM illuminations i-math investigations will be the focus of the study, however, the results are supposed to give some general insight into both the characteristics of translations, and to the role of insght and intuition plays in idenfying this.
