Abstract

This paper discusses how an interactive diagram (ID) called "Bank Account," which is a Java applet, can aid development and intuition of the idea of rate of change. Exploration with this ID helps to facilitate an informal understanding of derivatives and integration in calculus and their relationship. The study involves clinical interviews documenting two Algebra I students' understanding of both constant and varying rates of change. It is shown that through instruction with this ID, students are able to predict, model, and check their ideas.
