Acquiring Conventional Skills
Learning to count is a major turning point in quantitative development. Not surprisingly, there is a large literature on the milestones in acquisition of conventional counting skills. This chapter reviews these milestones, and considers how they may connect to the nonverbal foundation described in previous chapters. Similar reviews are provided for other conventional skills, including calculation, measurement, and fraction notation. In each case, the major milestones in acquisition of the conventions are described, and these are connected to the likely nonverbal precursors.
