Abstract Abstract. The purpose of the present study was twofold. First to examine the relationship between proportional (arithmetic) and analogical (verbal) problems and second to examine the breath of strategies used while solving them by Cypriot students in fifth and sixth primary grade. The results showed that students confront in a different way proportional and analogical problems. Concerning the strategies used, fifth grade students seem to prefer finding the factor of change while sixth grade students prefer to use the rule of three method. The results also reveal that a great percentage of students of both ages have not a complete perception of the relationships which condition an analogy. The application of the implicative statistical analysis of R. Gras and more general the CHIC software give a clear idea of the relations between proportional and analogical problems according to students ’ replies.
