Complexities of Counting.
Stake, Bernadine Evans
This document focuses on one child's skip counting methods. The pupil, a second grade student at Steuben School, in Kankakee, Illinois, was interviewed as she made several attempts at counting twenty-five poker chips on a circular piece of paper. The interview was part of a larger study of "Children's Conceptions of Number and Numeral," funded by the National Institute of Education (NIE) and directed by Jack Easley and Harold Lerch. The study indicated that the five principles of counting as proposed by Rochel Gelman and C. R. Gallistel are useful, but do not go far enough. Three additional principles are proposed and described.
