A modelling challenge : untangling learner knowledge

Nicolas Balacheff


For now about three decades, systematic research on students learning of science and mathematics has evidenced a great variety of the possible understanding for a given notion, as well as an important sensitivity of these understandings to contexts. Students' knowing appears as a tangle of local conceptions of which we have a very partial and unorganised picture. We present here the outlines of the modelling tool we have developed, and of its framework, in order to give account of learners' knowings in a coherent way although preserving the realm of their diversity and heterogeneity.
