ab: An important feature of students’ understanding of algebra and
trigonometry is the relations and representations that are constructed
between these two areas of school mathematics. In this study we report
one students’ understanding of the concepts before and after two
lessons. The student developed knowledge about the topics that appears
to be consistent with what the teacher was aiming at. However, in a
problem-solving situation, the student activated knowledge that was
different and incorrect. The results provide tentative support for the
argument that students sometimes develop ‘garbled knowledge’.
