ab: In the presentation, a learning-model for the arithmetic-algebra
development is described and illustrated by data from their
experimental teaching. Of crucial importance in this development are
the steps from knowledge in action into knowledge in words, and from
the latter into symbolic language knowledge. The model, which is based
on a constructivist approach, emphasises that this development is a
long term process, and that it is a challenge to mathematics educators
to change established teachers’ traditional views on the teaching of
algebra.
