Can Young Infants Add and Subtract?
Wakeley, Ann; Rivera, Susan; Langer, Jonas
Child Development, v71 n6 p1525-34 Nov-Dec 2000
Used Wynn's (1992) procedure in 3 experiments to test 5-month-olds' looking-time reactions to correct and incorrect results of simple addition and subtraction transformations. Found non-systematic evidence of either imprecise or precise adding and subtracting in young infants. Results suggest that infants' reactions to displays of adding and subtracting are variable; therefore, infants' numerical competencies are not robust. (Author/KB)
