In the following, does the word "as" mean "because"? Thanks.
This is a remarkable book. It is also remarkably easy to misunderstand its most important lessons. the author has conducted a study that compares mathematical understanding among U.S. and Chinese elementary school teachers as it relates to classroom teaching practices. What could be simpler? What could one possibly misconstrue? Let me count the ways.
Thanks for your reply. I have a follow-up question. The original basically compares understandings, not the practices, even though in effect, what is compared probably is practices. If I want to add UNDERSTANDING in my paraphrase, how to do that? The reason I want to add is that I don't want to jump too far so that students may have hard time understanding it. Thanks again in advance.
