ARITHMETIC WORD PROBLEMS AND ALGEBRA WORD PROBLEMS

  • Pedro Franco de Sá
  • John A. Fossa

Resumo

Algebra Word Problems are defined as Word Problems whose solution requires the use of the additive or multiplicative properties of equality. Arithmetic Word Problems, in contrast, do not require the stated properties for their solution, but only the substitution of equals. Evidence is given, showing that algebra problems are more difficult than arithmetic problems.
