If students are not encouraged to think flexibly about arithmetic and algebra in school, then this needs to be addressed by developmental courses and tasks designed to change the procedural orientation and superficial, fragmented knowledge of too many of our undergraduate students.
An instructor who participated in a recent formative assessment pilot study reported that many of her College Algebra students had difficulty using the linear factors of a polynomial correctly (McGowen & Tall, 2013).
