Specifically, this study investigated the application of two of Gelman's counting principles (Gelman & Gallistel, 1978; Gelman & Meck, 1983) using familiar and unfamiliar testing materials. The purposes of this study, therefore, were to identify the relationship between age and children's tendency to honor Gelman's counting principles, to identify the relationship between familiarity with testing materials and the ability to honor counting principles and, to identify the relationship between set size and children's tendency to honor Gelman's counting principles.
