123s and ABCs: developmental shifts in logarithmic-to-linear responding reflect fluency with sequence values.

Abstract

When placing numbers along a number line with endpoints 0 and 1000, children generally space numbers logarithmically until around the age of 7, when they shift to a predominantly linear pattern of responding. This developmental shift of responding on the number placement task has been argued to be indicative of a shift in the format of the underlying… (More)
