Proportional, or multiplicative, thinking requires learners to decide how many times bigger or smaller one quantity is than another. A quantity involves a number and a referent (e.g. 42 kilograms).

An example that illustrates multiplicative thinking versus additive thinking is comparing monetary returns: Compare \$2 investment which increases to \$8 with a \$12 investment increasing to \$18. An additive thinker will note that the increase in both cases is \$6, so the return is the same in both cases. Thinking multiplicatively though, the \$2 investment has increased by a factor of 4 times where as the \$12 increased by a factor of 1.5 times. So the return rate for the \$2 investment is substantially higher.

Actually, when I entered the business world, the http://myessays.webstarts.com/review_about_edusson_com.html made it clear to me. It&#39;s better to invest in the \$2 6 times than to invest in \$12 once. It costs the same though the returns are way higher.
