What do babies know about numbers?


Few developmental milestones seem more difficult for children to master than learning to count. In this talk, Dr. Odic highlights research showing that even babies and preschoolers have a surprisingly robust understanding of numbers and math, including knowing how to intuitively add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Dr. Odic also discusses this apparent divide between children’s intuitive understanding of numbers, and their slow learning of mathematics, and how psychologists are working to bridge this gap.
