Description of Presentation:

A prominent view in developmental psychology holds that children’s numerical thinking shifts from using logarithmic to linear mental representations. New evidence showing that proportional reasoning better explains children’s performance will be discussed, with the goal of fostering exchange between cognitive science and math education researchers.
