Vega-Castro, D., Molina, M. y Castro, E. (2012). Reproduction of algebraic structures by 16-18 year old students. Conferencia presentada en The 12th International Congress on Mathematical Education. COEX, Seoul, Korea.
In this exploratory research we analyze the structure sense evidenced by 33 secondary students (16-18 years old) in tasks requiring to reproduce the structure of given algebraic expressions. The expressions used were algebraic fractions related to algebraic identities. There were big differences between the students performance which allowed differencing levels in students´ structure sense. Questions and conjectures to be addressed in future research are presented.
