ab: Summary: A research focusing on the ability of the students to learn, the
thinking capacity of the teachers and the languages, policy and
technologies used in the classroom is conducted in order to understand
and overcome the problem of students in learning algebra. The analysis
shows that the problem is caused by the use of an instrumental approach
because of the time and testing pressures and can be solved by
retreating to a relational approach, where the students are properly
explained all the basic fundamentals before solving the problems.
