Teaching Analytic Reasoning and Analogical ReasoningUsing Math Exercises Involving FractionsByAnthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq., Coif ©Copyright 2010 by Anthony J. Fejfar You can teach your child or student with math fraction exercises which help todevelop cross hemisphere, interactive thinking which is both analytic and analogical.You can begin the educational process by buying wood , Cuisenaire Math Education blocks atwww.Amazon.com,at an affordable price. The Cuisenaire block can be used to teach fractions by, for example, taking one block and lining it up with other blocks, sothat the blocks line up with the same length. Thus, three blocks of one size and color can be lined up with one longer block of a different color. Thus, three orange blocks mighthave the same length as one long, blue block. Thus, concretely, the child or student istaught that three blocks equal the same length as one long block, or, that 3 x 1/3 = 1.This exercise can be used with other blocks representing the fractions of 2 x ½ = 1, and4 x ¼ = 1, etc. This of course involves concrete logic, and so a materialist or a personwho uses the concept of “reification” cannot object to the results. (continued on next page)

You can try the following fraction exercises to use three different types of logic:analytic logic, analytic/analogical logic, and analogical logicA. ½ = 2/4 analytic logic 1 divided by 2 equals 2/4B. ½ : 2/4 analytical/analogical logic 1 divided by 2 is as to 2 divided by 4C. 1:2 as 2:4 analogical logic 1 is to 2 as 2 is to 4also stated: 1:2 @ 2:4D. Solve problems: ½ = x/4 and ½ : x/4 and 1:2 @ x/4A. 2/4 = 4/8 analytical logic 2 divided by 4 equals 4 divided by 8B. 2/4 : 4/8 analytical/analogical logic 2 divided by 4 is as to 4 divided by 8C. 2 : 4 as 4:8 analogical logic 2 is to 4 as 4 is to 8also stated: 2:4 @ 4:8 (@ means “as”)D. Solve problems: 2/4 = x/8 and 2/4 : x/8 and 2:4 @ x:8You can also use the following educational exercise which is somewhat different:A. 4/8 = 8/16 analytic logic 4 divided by 8 equals 8 divided by 16B. 4/8 : 8/16 analytic/analogical logic 4/8 is as to 8/16C. 4:8 as 8:16 analogical logic 4 is to 8 as 8 is to 16also stated: 4:8 @ 8:16 (where @ means “as”)D. Solve problems: 4/8 = x/16 and 4/8 : x/16 and 4:8 @ x:16
