1 shows a possible initial position, with all the tiles being stacked in order of size on peg (A). The object, on any particular occasion, might be to move all the tiles to peg (C), so that they end up similarly ordered by size on that peg. The constraints are that only one tile may be removed from a peg at a time, and at no point can a larger tile be placed on top of a smaller one. 1, then the player has to move the smallest to (C), the middle tile to (B), the smallest to (B), the largest to (C), the smallest to (A), the middle tile to (C) and Wnally the smallest to (C), a total of seven moves.

Conscious, explicit monitoring and careful control of plan development) might lend themselves particularly well to facilitation through interaction, discussion and collaboration. We were also aware of evidence that ‘adventure games’ seemed to oVer particularly stimulating contexts for peer discussion and interaction (Crook, 1987; Johnson and Johnson, 1986). The task we designed lies somewhere along a continuum running from genuinely open adventure games to closed logical problems of the Tower of Hanoi type that we had used previously.

Broadly, the Wndings of these studies do seem to conWrm that the pairing of children while they work on a problem can improve their performance on similar problems when they meet them on their own at a later date. The Wrst Tower of Hanoi study showed that such facilitation can occur even for the initially more able member of a pair of children, but is likely to occur only for children who from the outset have at least some ideas of their own about how to tackle the problem. The second Tower of Hanoi study indicated that the beneWts of peer interaction depended on keeping the children jointly engaged and preventing dominance and ‘turn-taking’.
