Teaching children about the inverse relation between addition and subtraction
Two intervention studies are described. Both were designed to study the effects of teaching children about the inverse relation between addition and subtraction. The interventions were successful with 8-year-old children in Study 1 and to a limited extent with 5-year-old children in Study 2. In Study 1 teaching children about inversion increased their success not just in Inverse problems (a + b - b = ?) but also in Transfer complement problems (a + b = c; c - b = ?).
