Subject: Re: Defined areas of student struggles
Hi Rick, Thanks for your question to T2T. I have searched a couple of times now to try to find some research on this topic. I'm going to open this for public discussion. Sorry that I couldnt' be more helpful. >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? -Cynthia, for the T2T service Thanks for visiting our on-line community.
