Kieran, Carolyn; Sfard, Anna
Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, v21 n1 p1-17 Win 1999
Presents a teaching experiment to turn students from external observers into active participants in a game of algebra learning where students use graphs to build meaning for equivalence of algebraic expressions. Concludes that the graphic-functional approach seems to make the introduction to algebra much more meaningful for the learner. (ASK)
