Examines current research on brain development, focusing on infants' ability to understand basic numerical concepts and arithmetic operations. Asserts that as the brain undergoes dramatic transformations, it already has a built-in capacity to understand basic numerical concepts. Recommends that parents and professionals engage in activities encouraging mutual interaction rather than forcing young children to memorize numbers and arithmetic operations. (Author/KB)
