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.
