Young Children's Reasoning in Games of Nonsocial and Social Logic: "Tic Tac Toe" and a "Guessing Game."
Fernie, David E.; DeVries, Rheta
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v5 n4 p445-59 Dec 1990
A total of 87 children, 3- to 7-years old, were examined in a study of children's play and reasoning in games of mathematical logic and social logic. Children's sophistication in reasoning was positively related for two games, suggesting a common three-level progression from mastery of procedures to a competitive attitude to advanced strategy.
