Math without Words.
Hauser, Marc D.
Natural History, v106 n8 p52-55 Sep 1997
Explores the mathematical abilities of human infants compared with various species of animals. Studies indicate that human infants enter the world capable of doing simple mathematical operations. Nonhuman animals can discriminate among sets of objects based on the number of items in each set. Further studies may pinpoint the age at which children pass math tests that nonhuman primates fail.
