Abstract or Description

An accurate sense of numerical magnitude is crucial for children to develop an understanding of mathematics. As children being learning aobut numbers, they develop a logarithmic sense of number magnatudes- one where the numbers they can't understand or count are just considered "big" and are fairly indistinguishable- but as they learn more about numbers, they shift to a linear, 1:1 representation of numbers.
