Reasoning by Analogy in Solving Comparison Problems.
English, Lyn D.
Mathematical Cognition, v4 n2 p125-46 1998
Investigates 10-year-old children's abilities to reason by analogy in solving addition and subtraction comparison problems involving unknown compare sets and unknown reference sets. Children responded in a consistent manner to the tasks involving the basic addition problems, indicating substantial relational knowledge of these but responded in an erratic manner to the subtraction cases. Contains 49 references. (Author/ASK)
