Leong, Che Kan; Jerred, Wendy D.
Annals of Dyslexia, v51 p277-98 2001
A study involving 91 children (ages 3-5) divided into more able and less able sub-groups found mathematical word problems containing inconsistent information were more difficult than those with consistent information. Word problems containing inadequate and redundant information were more difficult to explain than those items with just enough information. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
