Sophian, Catherine; Vong, Keang I.
Cognition and Instruction, v13 n3 p469-77 1995
Compared children's performance on initial-unknown and final-unknown problems involving the addition or subtraction of a single item. Found that although 4-year olds responded in a directionally appropriate way to the final-unknown problems but not to the corresponding initial-unknown ones, 5-year olds were able to respond appropriately to both.
