Mathematics

Did you know ?

Around age 5, children discover that numbers continue to infinity.

From birth, babies know how to differentiate between small and large quantities.

Number sense is a universal ability, present in all cultures, even in cultures where there are no words to describe numbers. All human beings are capable of making number comparisons between sets of objects.

4 year olds can use a map to find their way around an environment.

 

Ongoing project

Origin of a numerical mental line

Numbers in Action: Origins and Dévelopental course – NUMACT

This project studies the appearance, properties and development of the link between number and the performance of an action using behavioural, electrophysiological and electromyographic measurements in human newborns and infants.
