ab: Summary: Many college instructors consider the final problem-solving steps
in their respective disciplines as “just algebra”; however, for
many college students, a weak foundation in algebra seems to be a
source of significant struggle with solving a variety of mathematics
problems. The purpose of this chapter is to reveal some typical algebra
errors that subsequently plague students’ abilities to succeed in
higher-level mathematics courses. The early detection and mindfulness
of these errors will aid in the creation of a model for intervention
that is specifically designed for students’ needs in each course.
