Student’ Algebraic Thinking Level

Septiani Y. Maudy, Didi S., and Endang M.

Abstract—Learning algebra as a bridge to improve mathematical ability in various aspects should not collapse. Many students get no meaning when learning algebra. Students' perceptions of algebra are difficult because there is a variable, therefore students have inherited difficulty. This article aims to share conceptual framework and to analyze research data that lead to algebraic thinking level of students. To be able to help students of various characteristics and ways of thinking, we as educators must know the difficulties they face and at which level the student's algebraic thinking is. So we can anticipate and facilitate them so they can bridge each level well and can help students improve their algebraic thinking.

Index Terms—Algebraic thinking, conceptual framework, learning obstacle.
