17). He provides an interesting contrast between the first Cognition and Instruction volume (Klahr, 1976) and the present one, and he reiterates—with a more optimistic stance—Hunt's (chap. 13) theme of science-based engineering as the path to a future in which he anticipates a teaching profession empowered by modern knowledge of mature cognition and child development, and the related design of curriculum content and teaching methods. Page xxi Acknowledgments The symposium that is the basis for the chapters in this volume was generously funded by the Office of Naval Research and the Directorate for Education & Human Resources at the National Science Foundation.
Detailed cognitive analysis of expert teachers, as well as a direct focus on enhancing teachers' cognitive models of learners and use of effective instructional strategies, is another area that has seen tremendous growth and refinement in the past 25 years. Minstrell (chap. 4) is uniquely able to address the role of the teacher from the dual perspective of a teacher–researcher. Insights from his own learning process as a teacher studying cognitive science complement his research on diagnosing students' understanding and application of physics principles, and both highlight the key role of the teacher in the learning process.
Finally, the last two lines of this figure show an increasing ability for students to algebraically abstract the newly differentiated representations, and to categorize types of functions accordingly. Our hypothesis is that the general structure of the model is maintained for all other types of functions, including nonlinear. All that differs is the notation and operations that must be employed. For example, for the nonlinear function y = x2, each kilometer in the first row of Fig. 3 is multiplied by itself, and the result is a set of values that grows exponentially and that is represented as a curved line in the integrative representation.
