Learning by Watching
I think everyone is aware that children learn by observation. How many times have you settled in to watch TV only to have the toddler next to you change channels? or turn the TV off? They did see you do it after all.
Recently, researchers have pushed this concept further and have found that children as young as 2 intuitively use mathematical concepts such as probability to help make sense of the world around them. In a study at the University of Washington, toddlers could tell the difference between two different game winning strategies based on the success rate of those strategies.
