The Use of Representations as a Vehicle To Promote Students' Mathematical Thinking in Problem Solving.
Santos, Manuel
International Journal of Computer Algebra in Mathematics Education, v7 n3 p193-212 2000
Documents what high school students showed when asked to work on tasks that involved the use of various representations. Indicates that few students made proper connections between representations and the initial situation or problem on their own and exhibited competence in procedures such as expressing an area or solving quadratic equations, but experienced difficulties in interpreting or connecting those procedures.
