Thus far, we have referred to attributes which the children may recognize from learning about triangles. We now move on to attributes less familiar to children who had only learnt about triangles and other polygons. Closed figures may consist of one continuous curved line or they may consist of a broken curved line. A circle must consist of a continuous curved line. Finally, among closed figures consisting of one continuous curved line, non-circles are those which do not have a center point which is equidistant 40 THE CASE OF CIRCLES from all points on the curve.
Typically, children who used this type of reasoning commented on the figure’s thinness or stretched out look. Even when children used critical attribute reasoning for this shape, their reasoning was often incorrect. ” In other words, this child knew that a triangle must have three straight sides and interpreted the two sides on the left and the two sides on the right as just one side on the left and one on the right. In the group of “almost triangles”, more responses (over 35%) consisted of visual reasoning based on the whole figure for these non-triangles than for any of the other non-triangles.

It is the last two attributes which we believe that children at this age may not grasp.
