ab: Summary: This is the second part of a study published in a previous issue
of this journal whose main goal was to analyze and document the types
of knowledge that university students exhibit to deal with fundamental
issues that they had studied in a first ordinary differential equation
course. Here, we focus on analyzing and discussing the following
research questions: (ii)~How do students make sense of, interpret and
deal with the concept of solution to an ODE? (iii)~What systems of
representation do they use to represent and explore the information
embedded in those questions in order to answer them? And, to what
extent do the students privilege the use of certain type of
representation?
