ab: Summary: Recent studies using neuroimaging technology with tasks touching
on various areas of mathematics are raising a great deal of excitement
with their findings. This chapter presents some key work related to
higher level mathematical reasoning and a few insights arising from
these studies with respect to our current understanding of algebra
learning. After a general introduction on cognitive neuroscience and
its recent advances relevant to mathematics education, the chapter
focuses on two studies in particular, one on the algebraic solving
method and the other on representing functions. The chapter concludes
with a discussion of the ways in which these results from the newly
emerging field, which is at times referred to as mathematics
educational neuroscience, offer the potential of casting a quite
different light on how we think about studentsâ€™ processing of
algebra-related material.
