Conceptual clarifications

In the conceptual clarifications version the player receives textual explanations regarding declarative knowledge in the domain of proportional reasoning. The conceptual clarifications pertain to the different strategies that can be used to solve proportional reasoning problems. These clarifications appear in the first three levels of each subgame when the player starts with the first assignment. A conceptual clarification comprises several steps. Each clarification step enforces the player to perform an action to continue with the next step.
