Abilities/Children/problem-solving/circumstances/VsPiaget/Klahr: We need to consider - more than Piaget did - the types of inferences a child can draw from his or her knowledge of daily environmental conditions. We need to investigate when children are able to build a purpose-resource chain by notiving relevant features of the environment and organizing a wide range of facts, constraints, and simple inferences in so systematic manner.
The TOH (Tower of Hanoi) provides an ideal context in which to explore these issues.
VsPiaget: we must guard against the problem of false positive interpretations (i.e., attributing an ability to the child that she or he does not have).
