Children's Understanding of Number Is Similar to Adults' and Rats': Numerical Estimation by 5- [to] 7-Year-Olds.
Huntley-Fenner, Gavin
Cognition, v78 n3 pB27-B40 Mar 2001
Examined analog number representations in 5- to 7- year-olds. Found that subjects accurately estimated rapidly presented groups of 5 to 11 items. Children's data were qualitatively and to some degree quantitatively similar to adult data, with one exception. The ratio of the standard deviation of estimates to mean estimates decreased with age.
