Young Children's Performance on the Balance Scale: The Influence of Relational Complexity.
Halford, Graeme S.; Andrews, Glenda; Dalton, Cherie; Boag, Christine; Zielinski, Tracey
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n4 p417-45 Apr 2002
Three experiments investigated effects of complexity on 2- to 6-year-olds' understanding of a beam balance. Found that 2- to 4-year-olds succeeded on problems that entailed binary relations, but 5- and 6-year-olds also succeeded on problems that entailed ternary relations. Ternary relations tasks from other domains (transitivity and class inclusion) accounted for 93 percent of age-related variance in scores. (Author/KB)
