Mathematical reasoning and familiar procedures
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of mathematics.
2000 (English)In: International journal of mathematical education in science and technology, ISSN 0020-739X, E-ISSN 1464-5211, Vol. 31, no 1, 83-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Four first-year undergraduate students are working with two tasks. The underlying question treated is "what are the characteristics and background causes of their difficulties when trying to solve these tasks?" The purpose is to give a general survey of their main difficulties, rather than to go deeply into details. It seems like one of the common characteristics is that the students are more focused on what is familiar and remembered, than on (even elementary) mathematical reasoning and accuracy.
