Tapia, Martha; And Others
This paper reviews the current theory and research on algebra/mathematics word problems. First, the major research findings are identified and summarized along with the theoretical perspectives that produced the research. The findings are then interpreted from the perspectives of traditional and wholetheme approaches. Also, a sample methodology of each approach is presented to provide a concrete understanding of the differences between the two. Contains 14 references. (Author/AA)
