Abstract:
This thesis reports on a study of the transfer of mathematical knowledge by undergraduate chemistry students. Transfer in this research refers to the studentsâ€™ ability to use mathematical concepts, previously experienced within a mathematics course, within chemistry contexts. A pilot study was undertaken with a sample of secondyear undergraduate chemistry students in order to determine their ability to transfer mathematical knowledge from a mathematics context to a chemistry context. The results showed that, while certain students could transfer (i.e., answer mathematical items correctly in a mathematics context and then in a chemistry context), many students were unable to transfer due to insufficient mathematical knowledge. These results motivated the main study, in which studentsâ€™ ability to transfer mathematical concepts was investigated and analysed in two respects. These were the degree to which transfer was present, and the degree to which a particular characteristic, n...
