These actions-on-objects are children’s main way of operating on, knowing, and learning about, the world, including the world of mathematics. 2. Domain specific progression. These developmental progressions often are most propitiously characterized within a specific mathematical domain or topic (see also Dowker, 2005; Karmiloff-Smith, 1992; cf. Resnick’s “conceptual rationalism,” 1994; Van de Rijt & Van Luit, 1999).

An intermediate position appears warranted, such as interactionalist theories that recognize the interacting roles of the nature and nurture (Newcombe, 2002). In interactionalist, constructivist theories, children actively and recursively create knowledge. Structure and content of this knowledge are intertwined and each structure constitutes the organization and components from which the child builds the next, more sophisticated, structure. In comparison to nativism’s initial representational cognition, children’s early structures are prerepresentational.

Supporting this position, Fitzhugh (1978) found that some children could subitize sets of one or two, but were not able to count them. None of these very young children, however, were able to count any sets that they could not subitize. She concluded that subitizing is a necessary precursor to counting. Research with infants similarly suggested that young children possess and spontaneously use subitizing to represent the number contained in small sets, and that subitizing emerges before counting (A.
