Summary: Teachers' content knowledge and perceptions about representations of linear functions is a major factor that affects students' concept building and learning processes. This paper reports students' understanding of linear functions in contextual and graphical representations. Students' misconceptions and limited understanding of linear functions in real life situations are discussed. The findings highlight the social and cognitive aspects of students learning in STEM fields.
