    Abstract

    In this paper, we describe the relationship between the use of digital tools and student conceptual understanding by interpreting students’ behavior from an instrumentation theory perspective. The theoretical framework includes student difficulties in initial algebra learning and the instrumentation theory. The data included video registrations of a group of three seventh-grade students (12-13 year-old) using the Cover-up and the Balance Strategy applets for solving equations in one variable. The results revealed that the instrumentation theory provides an explicit relationship between techniques and schemes while solving the problems using digital tools. The techniques can be interpreted as observable procedural skills while using the digital tools and the schemes as conceptual understanding of the students, including their difficulties while solving the problems. Keywords: algebra education, applets, digital technology, equations in one variable, instrumentation theory.
