De Bock, Dirk; Verschaffel, Lieven; Janssens, Dirk
Mathematical Thinking and Learning, v4 n1 p65-89 2002
Focuses on the overgeneralization of the linear model--the so-called illusion of linearity. Reports on two follow-up studies investigating the effects of problem presentation and formulation on the strength of the illusion of linearity. Shows that including visual scaffolds and making comparison problems has a positive effect on students' ability to resist the linearity illusion. (Author/MM)
