The Visual Syntax of Algebra.
Kirshner, David
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v20 n3 p274-87 May 1989
A structured system of visual features is seen to parallel the propositional hierarchy of operations usually associated with the parsing of algebraic expressions. Women more than men were found to depend on these visual cues. Possible causes and consequences are discussed. Subjects were secondary and college students. (Author/DC)
