Use of the Mathematical Principle of Inversion in Young Children.
Rasmussen, Carmen; Ho, Elaine; Bisanz, Jeffrey
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v85 n2 p89-102 Jun 2003
Presented preschoolers and first graders with 3-term inversion problems such as 3 + 2 - 2 and similar standard problems to examine whether children used the inversion principle and if use was based on qualitative identity, length, or quantity. Found that both age groups showed evidence of using inversion in a fully quantitative manner, indicating that this principle is available in some form prior to extensive formal mathematics instruction.
