The Study and Facilitation of Talent for Mathematics


by Julian C. Stanley 1979

Also, it is difficult to measure mathematical reasoning ability until the young student has acquired enough knowledge of elementary general mathematics with which to reason. The basic content of the test items must be fairly well known so that reasoning can be the chief trait measured.
