Irwin, Kathryn C. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1996
Interviews with 107 children, ages 4-7, about uncounted quantities, counted quantities, and numerical equations showed that the ability to predict changes to counted quantities increased with age. Only 7-year olds were able to use covariance and compensation in the purely numerical context of derived equations. (Author/MKR)
