Perceptions of Proportionality in Young Children: Matching Spatial Ratios.
Sophian, Catherine
Cognition, v75 n2 p145-70 May 2000
Three experiments examined the ability of 4- and 5-year- olds and adults to identify correspondences in spatial ratios. Results suggested that young children made accurate spatial proportionality judgments based on relational information and not on the exact form of the stimuli. Findings pose implications for theories of mathematical development and for methods of mathematics instruction. (Author/KB)
