Módulo 1: Expresar generalidad

¿Por qué expresar generalidad ?

Every learner who starts school has already displayed the power to generalise and abstract from particular cases, and this is the root of algebra.
The suggestion made is that expressing generality is entirely natural, pleasurable, and part of human sense-making. Algebra provides a manipulable symbol system and language for expressing and manipulating that generality.The core pedagogic issue is therefore about enabling learners to employ their natural powers in using algebra to make sense both of the world and of other people’s use of algebra.

Nevertheless, you have a sense of a generality. Whilst generalising is natural,
learners need time to notice when they have a sense of a generality, and time to
express generality, to strengthen and extend their natural powers to generalise.
