# Teachers' and Researchers' Beliefs about the Development of Algebraic Reasoning.

@article{Nathan2000TeachersAR, title={Teachers' and Researchers' Beliefs about the Development of Algebraic Reasoning.}, author={Mitchell J. Nathan and K. Koedinger}, journal={Journal for Research in Mathematics Education}, year={2000}, volume={31}, pages={168} }

Mathematics teachers and educational researchers ordered arithmetic and algebra problems according to their predicted problem-solving difficulty for students. Predictions deviated systematically from algebra students’ performances but closely matched a view implicit in textbooks. Analysis of students’ problem-solving strategies indicates specific ways that students’ algebraic reasoning differs from that predicted by most teachers and researchers in the sample and portrayed in common textbooks… Expand
