Mathematical Reasoning in Task Solving.
Lithner, Johan
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v41 n2 p165-90 Feb 2000
Describes an earlier study on the main characteristics and background of undergraduate students' difficulties when trying to solve mathematical tasks. Focuses on and extends part of an earlier study that concerned task solving strategies. Indicates that focusing on what is familiar and remembered at a superficial level is dominant over reasoning based on the mathematical properties of the components involved. (Contains 16 references.)
