An Exploration of Aspects of Language Proficiency and Algebra Learning.
MacGregor, Mollie; Price, Elizabeth
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v30 n4 p449-67 Jul 1999
Investigates whether three cognitive components of language proficiency--metalinguistic awareness of symbol, syntax, and ambiguity--are associated with students' success in learning algebraic notation. Reports that very few students with low metalinguistic awareness scores achieved high algebra scores in a total sample of more than 1500 students. Discusses implications of this finding for the school algebra curriculum. Contains 45 references. (Author/ASK)
