The Development of Children's Understanding of Proportions
Chapman, Robert H.
Child Development, 46, 1, 141-148, Mar 75
Children in grades 1, 3, and 5 and college students were given a variety of judgment tasks contrasting the comparison of quantity with the comparison of proportions to determine whether the understanding of proportions develops before formal operations. Results indicated that the comprehension of abstract relations requires formal operations. (Author/ED)
