Careful consideration of our system of numeration leads to the conviction that, rather than being a facility that comes naturally to a person, it is one of the great and remarkable achievements of the human race. It is impossible to learn the sequence of events that led to our developing the concept of number.
Even the earliest of tribes had a system of numeration that, if not advanced, was sufficient for the tasks that they had to perform.
Our ancestors had little use for actual numbers; instead their considerations would have been more of the kind is this enough rather than How many when they were engaged in food gathering, for example.
However when early humans first began to reflect on the nature of things around them, they discovered that they needed on idea of number simple to keep their thoughts in order.
As they began to settle, grow plants and herd animals, the need for a sophisticated number system became paramount. It will never be known how and when this numeration ability developed, but it is certain that numeration was well developed by the time humans had formed even semi-permanent settlements.
Evidence of early stages of arithmetic and numeration can be readily found. The indigenous peoples of Tasmania were only able to count one, two, many; those of South Africa counted one, two, two and one, two twos and one, and so on.
But in real situations the number and words are often accompanied by gestures to help resolve any confusion. For example, when using the one, two, many type of system, the word many would mean, Look at my hands and see how many fingers I am showing you.
This basic approach is limited in the range of numbers that it can express, but this range will generally suffice when dealing with the simpler aspects of human existence. The lack of ability of some cultures to deal with large numbers is not really surprising. European languages, When traced back to their earlier version, are very poor in number words and expressions.
The ancient Gothic word for ten, tachund, is used to express the number as tachund tachund. By the seventy century, the word teen had become interchangeable with the tachund or hund of the Anglo-Saxon language, and so was denoted as hund teontig,or ten times ten.
The average person in the seventh century in Europe was not as familiar with numbers as we are today. In fact, to qualify as a witness in a count of low a man had to be able to count to nine! It must have been within me grasp of the earliest humans to conceive that four birds are distinct from two birds; however, it is not an elementary step to associate the number 4, as connected with four birds, to the number 4, as connected with four rocks.Model and sample answers for Writing tasks Sample answer sheets Acknowledgements Introduction The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is widely recognised as a reliable means of assessing the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.
