Generalization of Patterns: The Tension between Algebraic Thinking and Algebraic Notation.
Zazkis, Rina; Liljedahl, Peter
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v49 n3 p379-402 2002
Explores the attempts of a group of preservice elementary school teachers to generalize a repeating visual number pattern. Discusses students' emergent algebraic thinking. Indicates that students' ability to express generalities verbally was not accompanied by algebraic notation, but participants often perceived complete and accurate solutions that did not involve inadequate algebraic symbolism.
