Abstract Title: Comparing Physics and Mathematics Problems
Abstract: Presented is a subsection of a larger project to understand and facilitate students use of mathematics when solving physics problems.  Specifically, this study is an examination of how students group/pair problems in math and physics.  The results show that whether students examine surface or structure is in part dependent on context.
