The Effects of Selected Experiences on the Ability of Kindergarten Children to Use Conservation and the Transitive Property of Six Relations.
Owens, Douglas T.
Two groups of kindergarten children had activities involving the transitive property of matching relations and length relations, respectively. Both groups had activities involving transitivity of weight relations. A control group had instruction only on relations. Pretests of Matching Relations, Length Relations, Matching Relations Conservation, Length Relations Conservation, Matching Relations Transitivity and Length Relations Transitivity were given. Posttests were given on the latter four. Analysis of covariance on each posttest, using the six pretest as covariables, showed significant difference (p .05) for treatment on Matching Relations Transitivity. Further analysis revealed that both treatment groups outperformed the control group, but did not perform differentially. (Author)
