Spinillo, Alina G.; Bryant, Peter E.
Mathematical Cognition, v5 n2 p181-97 1999
Studies 6- to 8-year olds' responses to sliced task, standard and choices were discontinuous quantities, and non-sliced task, standard was continuous and choices were discontinuous quantities in order to discover whether children use half boundary in ratio comparisons between continuous and discontinuous quantities. Reveals that "dhalf" plays a crucial role in children's proportional reasoning even when discontinuous quantities are involved. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/ASK)
