Hecht, Steven Alan
Journal of Educational Psychology, v90 n3 p545-59 Sep 1998

Conceptual and procedural knowledge adequately explained individual differences in fraction solving and problem set-up accuracy, but only conceptual knowledge adequately expressed differences in fraction estimation skills.
