Title:
Finger und Zahlen - Förderung basaler numerischer Fähigkeiten mit Hilfe der Finger
Duration:
01/06/2020 to 30/06/2023
Abstract / short description:
In recent years, accumulating evidence suggested that the representation of numbers may not be purely abstract, but presents a specific case of embodied cognition rooted in the sensory and bodily experiences of early finger counting and calculating. However, the mechanisms driving the relation between FMS/finger gnosis and numerical development still remain largely unclear. The same holds true for using finger-based numerical strategies to acquire numerical concepts. The proposed project aims at investigating the impact and interrelation of finger gnosis, FMS, and finger-based numerical strategies on numerical development. To pursue these aims, a controlled intervention study in kindergarten with pre-posttest-follow-up design will be conducted.
