This investigation looks at the difficulties tenth-grade students have with the concept of proportionality and the problems this causes in tenth-grade physics. Students were asked to solve various problems in the areas of volume measurement and weight, all relating to proportionality, and their approaches to the tasks were recorded. As a result, the students were categorized according to Piagetian terms. (BB)
