From Objects to Quantities: Developments in Preschool Children's Judgments about Aggregate Amount.
Sophian, Catherine
Developmental Psychology, v36 n6 p724-30 Nov 2000
Examined the impact of object boundaries on 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds' quantitative reasoning. Asked subjects to choose between alternative collections that differed in number and size of cookies and in aggregate amount. Found that children were influenced by size of individual cookies at 3 years but were generally unsuccessful in aggregating size information across multiple cookies until 5 years. (Author/KB)
