I am trying to find resources that define specific areas of student struggles in the math classroom at the high school level. That is, are there articles/research around areas (concepts or otherwise) that have been defined as necessary and sufficient for struggling learners to succeed in mathematics. I know there is a lot of anecdotal inference that allows some to argue that students have to build their arithmetic skills prior to abstraction. Is there any research that suggests this is true, or more importantly, that this type of solution is a necessary condition for success in algebra and beyond?
