Teaching from Patterns to Functions in Algebraic Thinking Process



Function concept that mathematics educators has worked on importantly for years is still a source of
difficulties for students. Because the functional relationship is a prerequisite notion for the function concept and the functional
relationship should be gained from the outset, teaching of the function concept should be considered not in the high school
mathematics, but in the early grades mathematics. In this study, the relationship between the pattern and function concepts
and teaching strategies of them in the algebraic thinking process are investigated based on literature, and the results obtained
from this investigation are given by supporting with the researchers’ recommendations.

Key words: Pattern, Function, Algebraic Thinking
