Understanding the Concepts of Proportion and Ratio among Grade Nine Students in Malaysia.
Singh, Parmjit
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v31 n4 p579-99 Jul-Aug 2000
Investigates the concepts of ratio and proportion constructed by grade 9 students by investigating their proportional reasoning schemes and procedures on three types of tasks: missing value, numerical comparison, and qualitative reasoning. Indicates that students frequently used additive reasoning--that is, a comparison of two numbers by subtraction rather than division. (Contains 15 references.) (Author/ASK)
