White, C. Stephen; Alexander, Patricia A; Daugherty, Martha
Mathematical Cognition, v4 n2 p103-23 1998
Examines the association between young children's analogical reasoning ability and their mathematical learning. Records and analyzes children's nonverbal behaviors and their private and social speech. Concludes that analogical reasoning is significantly related to mathematical learning and children's scores on the measure of mathematical learning, especially on patterning subtest, significantly predicting their performance on the analogical reasoning task. Contains 53 references. (Author/ASK)
