Symbolic Representation across Domains in Preschool Children.
Bialystok, Ellen
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n3 p173-89 Jul 2000
Two studies examined understanding of notational representation among 3- to 5-year-olds. Children solved problems when shown cards with a picture or word indicating identity or a quantity indicator. In the easier condition, children had difficulty solving the problems as a function of their familiarity with the notation, suggesting weaknesses in children's understanding of how representations refer to meanings.
