The chapter reviews research on infants' and children's developing mathematical competencies—from the ability to determine sizes of small sets to the solving of word problems. A brief summary of the history of research in the area is provided in the first section, and reviews of contemporary research are provided in the second section. The latter includes reviews of research and debate on infants' and preschool children's early quantitative abilities. These include infants' sensitivity to the… 
Development of children’s early understanding of numeric structure
Understanding of the base-10 structure of multi-digit numbers is one of the critical aspects in early mathematics learning. It has been documented that children from different countries vary in their

TLDR
The importance of maintaining a tight link between theoretical and empirical research on children's developing numerical, arithmetical, and mathematical competencies and future research on learning disabilities in mathematics will provide the foundation for transforming experimental procedures into assessment measures and developing remedial approaches.
Role of Executive Processing in Children's Arithmetic
This project examined the role of executive processing in the development of arithmetic addition in 163 children aged from 6 to 9 years. Executive processing was conceptualised as involving working

Fractions Learning in Children With Mathematics Difficulties
TLDR
The theory proved useful for understanding differences in fraction knowledge between MD and TA children and for understanding how knowledge can be improved and the possibility of improving fraction magnitude knowledge and producing benefits that generalize to fraction arithmetic learning among children with MD.

TLDR
A analysis of the diverse set of components purported to be encompassed by “number sense” reveals some major differences between the ways in which number sense is defined in the mathematical cognition literature and its definition in the literature in mathematics education.

Linguistic influences on children's number concepts: methodological and theoretical considerations.
TLDR
This paradigm does not always support the idea that language affects number concepts and that children's performance is shaped by other constraints, and it appears that the task reflects in part children's interpretations and misinterpretations of task demands.
Young Children's Understanding of Addition Concepts
Children's knowledge of concrete versions of additive composition, commutativity and associativity was investigated in two studies. In Study 1, 24 four- to five-year-olds and 25 five- to

TLDR
The extent to which certain information-processing demands make some problems more difficult than others and whether preschoolers use arithmetic concepts spontaneously when solving novel problems is determined.

Part-Whole Knowledge and Early Arithmetic Problem Solving
In two experiments, we examined the development of 4- to 6-year-old children's understanding of part-whole relations. The first experiment tested the hypothesis that young children do not appreciate

Development of arithmetical competencies in Chinese and American children: influence of age, language, and schooling.
TLDR
The pattern of arithmetical development across the academic year and across the Chinese and American children suggests that a mix of cultural and maturational factors influence the emergence of early arithmetic competencies and that the Chinese advantage in early mathematical development is related to a combination of language- and school-related factors.
Japanese children's numerical competencies: age- and schooling-related influences on the development of number concepts and addition skills.
TLDR
Investigating the development of number concepts and addition skills in Japanese children suggests that schooling is an important determinant in developing Japanese-speaking children's numerical competencies, which were not explained solely by their language characteristics or by age-related factors.
