The Height + Width Rule in Children's Judgments of Quantity.
Anderson, Norman H.; Cuneo, Diane O.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, v107 n4 p335-78 Dec 1978
In eight experiments, judgments of rectangle area by five-year-olds followed a reliable adding rule: height + width. In collateral work, the children judged the amount of liquid in a glass by a height-only rule. Implications for the Piagetian theories of centration and compensation are drawn. (SJL)
