Kota, Saraswathi; Thomas, Michael O. J.

Hypothesizes that the incidence of process-oriented thinking increases with the syntactic complexity of the problem presentation. Presents data confirming students' arithmetic preferences in the form of left-to-right translation along with evidence to show the effects of the ordering of data presentation in the problem statements on the problem-solving abilities of students. Contains 31 references. (Author/ASK)
