Evolutionary origins and early development of number processing

Author: David C Geary; Daniel B Berch; Kathleen Mann Koepke
Publisher: London : Academic Press, 2015. ©2015
Series: Mathematical cognition and learning, v. 1.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : First editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
The first volume in this ground-breaking series focuses on the origins and early development of numerical cognition in non-human primates, lower vertebrates, human infants, and preschool children. The text will help readers understand the nature and complexity of these foundational quantitative concepts and skills along with evolutionary precursors and early developmental trajectories.
