Finding the input when the output is known is the process of: (a) simplifying (b) evaluating (c) factoring (d) solving 2 Examining the Role of Prior Experience in the Learning of Algebra 29 Only nine of 75 (13 %) Introductory Algebra students and 15 of 114 (12 %) College Algebra students selected (b) evaluating as the correct response to question A. On question B, less than 19 % of Introductory Algebra students and only 31 % of College Algebra students chose option (d) solving. ” The response “to get a variable by itself” was given by 35 % of the participating students.
McGowen years1 to 516 community college and university students enrolled in a developmental algebra course showed that, at the completion of the course, 81 % (418/516) of the students correctly evaluated (À3)2, but only 49 % (251/516) of the students could correctly evaluate À32. ” The minus and the three are taken together as “minus three,” and the student has been told that the square of a negative number is positive. In an expression with more terms to put together, the problem may become more complicated.
6) is an example from a final exam in a senior-level statistics course. To find the mean E(Y), the student (see Fig. 7) used the correct formula and successfully substituted the limits for the integration and progressed well up to the second line. At the third line, a minus sign was incorrectly introduced (first error), either as he was working or was introduced later in the process. At the fourth line, a number of algebraic errors were made as the student tried to force the situation to arrive at the given result.
