Hazzan, Orit; Hadar, Irit – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005
This article presents research on students' understanding of basic concepts in Graph Theory. Students' understanding is analyzed through the lens of the theoretical framework of reducing abstraction (Hazzan, 1999). As it turns out, in spite of the relative simplicity of the concepts that are introduced in the introductory part of a traditional…
