Preview

This chapter begins by summarizing the book's four main themes: (1) major developmental changes in quantification from infancy to early childhood; (2) the role of continuous amount in early quantification; (3) various proposals for nonverbal representation of quantity; and (4) the mapping of conventional skills onto this nonverbal foundation. It concludes by identifying potential connections between quantitative development and development in other domains, including categorization, language, and space.

Keywords: infancy; early childhood; quantification; nonverbal representation; conventional symbol systems; number; categorization; language; space
