Children's Difficulties on Quantitative Tasks: Are They Simply a Misunderstanding of Relational Terms?
Brush, Lorelei R.; And Others
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 9, 2, 149-51, Mar 78
An experimental and control group of thirty-two four and five year-old children received identical quantitative tasks except for the language used. Results showed that children's difficulties with simple arithmetic tasks were not purely linguistic. The conclusion supports the suggestion that the development of language is intertwined with conceptual development. (MN)
