Understanding Understanding

My group’s Understanding Understanding project is about order of operations. We designed a question, using the order of operations, that would, or should, come out to a positive answer, despite our interviewees misconceptions about the order in which to solve the problem, or the mnemonic device that they remember learning to solve order of operations problems. We then, created a protocol of questioning to get down to the details on how people solved the question correctly or incorrectly.
