Functional analysis arose in the early twentieth century and gradually, conquering one stronghold after another, became a nearly universal mathematical doctrine, not merely a new area of mathematics, but a new mathematical world view. Its appearance was the inevitable consequence of the evolution of all of nineteenth-century mathematics, in particular classical analysis and mathematical . Algebra (from Arabic: الجبر (al-jabr, meaning "reunion of broken parts" and "bonesetting")) is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and its most general form, algebra is the study of mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols; it is a unifying thread of almost all of mathematics.

Similarly, Small’s book  is a very enjoyable, well written book and focuses on the most essential aspects of functional equations. Once the reader. representing patterns and relationships. Thus we expect all students to be able to construct as well as to recognize symbolic representations such as y = f(x) = 4x+1. They should also develop an understanding of the many other representations and applications of functions as well as of a greater variety of functional relationships.
mathematics.” (p. ). Algebra is, in essence, the study of patterns and relationships; finding the value of x or y in an equation is only one way to apply algebraic thinking to a specific mathematical problem. As we think about algebraic reasoning, it may also help to define the term algebra. The NCTMFile Size: KB.

Understanding function is a critical aspect of algebraic reasoning, and building functional relationships is an activity encouraged in the younger grades to foster students’ relational thinking. Our study in functional thinking pulled those algebraic strands together and introduced them to children at the beginning of formal education, in K–grade 2.
Admittedly, when we first began working with kindergarten and first-grade students, we were unsure what they would do when it came to functional thinking tasks.

An important goal in school algebra is to help students notice the covariational nature of functional relationships, how the values of variables change in relation to each other.
In particular, we examine how children think about functions and how instructional materials and school activities can be extended to support students’ functional thinking. Data are taken from a five-year research and professional development project conducted in an urban school district and from a graduate course for elementary teachers taught by the first by: The study of students’ functional thinking indicates that its development should commence in the elementary years and, therefore, be gradual and occur over a long period of time.
Function is not a concept that students typically understand (Chazan, ) and students have difficulty expressing themselves using algebraic notation (Neria & Amit, ).Cited by: difficult to learn algebra in the later years’ (p. In this research in the early years we are following the distinction delineated by Malara & Navarra (), that is, algebraic thinking is about processes and arithmetic thinking is about products.
One of the major components of algebraic thinking is functional thinking. Functional Thinking. larger research study about the role of exploratory and investigation tasks, involving functional relationships in students’ learning (Matos, ).
Its main goal is to identify the contributions of a teaching unit based on this curriculum strategy in students’ algebraic thinking. ALGEBRAIC THINKING. Sixty-five Year 2 children with ages ranging from six to seven years participated in a teaching experiment to introduce functional thinking.
The results show that young children are capable of generalising, can provide examples of relations and functions, can describe the inverse of such relationships and give valid reasons for how they found the inverse by: Set Theory by Burak Kaya.

numerical patterns to develop functional relationships. This study extends that work and builds on the emerging research base in early algebraic thinking by examining how students in elementary grades are able to develop and express functional relationships.
METHODOLOGY The data for this study were taken from GEAAR, a 6-year, teacher professional. Functional thinking is an appropriate way to introduce algebraic concepts in elementary school.
We have developed a framework for assessing and interpreting students’ level of understanding of functional thinking using a construct modeling approach.
An assessment was administered to second- through sixth-grade students. This book highlights new developments in the teaching and learning of algebraic thinking with 5- to year-olds.
Based on empirical findings gathered in several countries on five continents, it provides a wealth of best practices for teaching early algebra.
Algebra Abstract and Concrete. The book, Algebra: Abstract and Concrete provides a thorough introduction to algebra at a level suitable for upper level undergraduates and beginning graduate students. The book addresses the conventional topics: groups, rings, fields, and linear algebra, with symmetry as a unifying theme.
Consider the book by Haase: Functional Analysis: An Elementary Introduction. It's published in the Graduate Studies in Mathematics series, but it only assumes a background in linear algebra and elementary analysis (ie. it builds the basics of Lebesgue theory for you) and has a lot of the functional analysis relevant to applied mathematics.
Functional thinking involves focusing on the relationship between two (or more) varying quantities and such thinking facilitates the studies on both algebra and the notion of function. The development of functional thinking of students should start in the early grades and it should be improved gradually and extended over a long period of by: 8.
It is essential to lay a solid foundation in mathematics if a student is to be competitive in today's global market. The importance of algebra, in particular, cannot be overstated, as it is the basis of all mathematical modeling used in applications found in all disciplines.
Traditionally, the study of algebra is separated into a two parts, elementary algebra and intermediate algebra.4/5(9). functions and algebra strand of the K-5 Mathematics Standards of Learning.
