first steps

Idea

How do we arrive at mathematical language?

Number

Clearly first from matchings. We know that same size of sets is transitive and symmetric.

Sharing out evenly.

Comparison of sets.

More general comparison

Taller, stronger, longer, further, faster, larger, heavier, etc. Different scales. Some with unit. Lengths and heights, mass/weight, capacity and volume, time

Geometry

Shape, line, length, area. Straight.
