And, with this approach from the link, let’s now form a new school complete with specific language to be learned if one is to be a professional. Again, gack!


Yea, not all that interesting.
I did some reading on early childhood taken from an episode of radio lab. It was a good episode, and said that small kids think in numbers logarithmically. The example they used is "What number is half way between 1 and 9", an adult says 5 a small child says 3.

Which makes sense, when dealing with large numbers we tend to see doublings very easily, but it gets harder to think in a more linear fashion intuitively.

Although I guess I'll find out first hand. I'm a math nerd who just had his first child.
