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
