Teachers' and Researchers' Beliefs about the Development of Algebraic Reasoning.
Nathan, Mitchell J.; Koedinger, Kenneth R.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v31 n2 p168-90 Mar 2000
Presents research in which mathematics teachers and educational researchers ordered arithmetic and algebra problems according to their predicted problem-solving difficulty for students. Analysis of students' problem-solving strategies indicates specific ways that students' algebraic reasoning differs from that predicted by most teachers and researchers in the sample and commonly portrayed in textbooks.
