Factors in the Development of Proportional Reasoning Strategies by Concrete Operational College Students.
Roth, Wolff-Michael; Milkent, Marlene M.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v28 n6 p553-66 Aug 1991
Examines the relationships between the development of proportional reasoning strategies and three cognitive variables from Pascual-Leone's and Case's neo-Piagetian theories: (1) degree of field independence; (2) M-space; and (3) short-term storage space. Describes the ability of students to transfer problem-solving schemata to new contexts as well as the choice of problem-solving schemata after feedback. (KR)
