Children as Apprentices to Number.
Ewers-Rogers, Jennifer; Cowan, Richard
Early Child Development and Care, v125 p15-25 Nov 1996
Investigated understanding and use of numerals in 48 children ages 3 and 4. Found that children rarely noticed the absence of numbers if they were not able to explain their purpose. They used several methods to represent number on notes for the milkman, party invitations, and labels. Results suggest that understanding preceded use of numerals. (MOK)
