Do Young Children Understand Conservation of Number?
Halford, Graeme S.; Boyle, Frances M.
Child Development, v56 n1 p165-76 Feb 1985
Displays that by themselves always elicited chance judgment of number were shown to three- to four-year-olds and six- to seven-year-olds. The first display was transformed into the second, and so on. Results indicated that three- to four-year-olds do not understand conservation of number because judgements of successive displays were independent of each other. (Author/CB)
