Li, Chieh; Nuttall, Ronald L.; Zhao, Shuwen
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v30 n1 p91-105 Jan 1999
Examines why Chinese undergraduates perform better on an eight-item water-level task (WLT) than do U.S. undergraduates. Results suggest that the combined effect of writing Chinese characters and strong mathematical training in geometry contributes significantly to skills necessary to master the WLT. (MMU)
