On Comparing Error Patterns and the Effect of Maturation in a Unit on Sentential Logic
Eisenberg, Theodore A.; McGinty, Robert L.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 5, 4, 225-237, Nov 74
This study investigated whether reasoning ability improves with age and whether reasoning from negatively worded hypotheses is more difficult than from positively worded hypotheses. A 30-item logic test was constructed and given to elementary-school children and prospective elementary-school teachers. Only on certain forms was maturation a factor. (Author/LS)
