Abstract:
Ways in which students develop schemas as they generalize and formalize patterns when solving related algebraic problems. Article discusses teaching experiment emphasizing pattern generalization to understand the relationship between variables in algebraic problems. Includes examples of student work that lead to problem solving schema for solving algebraic problems.
