Number


The basic prerequisite that may be lacking or poorly understood is the concept of linear sequential organisation, i.e. the relationship of one object or number to those before it and those after it.

The pre-requisite for any form of pattern recognition is that the objects are recognized as being in a sequence. Without the concept of previous and next this is difficult to achieve.

In the classroom number is first presented in concrete form, and quickly moves on to abstract representation (1,2,3 etc) and children learn to count by rote. For many children the understanding of number and the relationships between numbers only comes through extensive kinesthetic interaction and concrete visualisations.
