Despina A. Stylianou 

August 2011, Volume 17, Issue 1, Page 8

An illustrative example from research is used to show how students’ representations might evolve in the process of solving a problem from concrete images to abstract symbols and what these evolutions might mean for students’ understanding and learning.
