abstract = {Summary: Teaching algebra is challenging for both teachers and learners. While understanding is pursued, how often does expediency become `the name of the game'? The fruit salad approach has long been discredited, yet it is still a reality in many classrooms. Is this approach driven by the textbook? \dots\ or is the textbook, in this case, simply a public exemplification of a type of thinking that prevails within the teaching of mathematics?},
