Abstract: In this study we explored the errors due to analogical reasoning made by students from a sample of 69 Year 12 students in a Junior College in Singapore. The data collected included students’ responses to a test and post-test interview with selected students. The errors seem to stem from their earlier work in mathematics at lower levels. They wrongly transferred structural information from situations that they had met earlier at secondary level.
