Please note that my Homepage has been moved to and been updated with the following paper, which may be of interest to some here:
"An instrumental approach to modeling the derivative in Sketchpad".

The paper discusses/describes a hypothetical learning trajectory for modelling the derivative and related concepts in introductory calculus with dynamic mathematics software, and which was implemented with first-year non-mathematics major undergraduate science students., Ndlovu, M., Wessels, D., & De Villiers, M. (2011). Pythagoras, 2011, 3.8 MB, PDF.
