Using the Elegance of Arithmetic To Enhance the Power of Algebra.
McConnell, Michael; Bhattacharya, Dip N.
Mathematics Teacher, v92 n6 p492-95 Sep 1999
Produces algebraic solutions by reducing the problems to equations and arithmetic solutions that do not use variables. Investigates how the arithmetic solution helps students better understand the problem before they approach it algebraically and how logic used in solving the problem arithmetically can be directly linked to the algebraic solutions.
