Samantha, age 5, is sitting at the table, separating the food on her plate so that each vegetable has a diff erent space on the plate. When her father notices what she is doing, he says, “Wow, there are a lot more carrots than Brussels sprouts.” Samantha looks confused because the Brussels sprouts are taking up a lot more room on her plate. Realizing the confusion, Samantha’s dad suggests that they count each carrot and Brussels sprout as they move them from one side of the plate to the other. He also points out the size diff erence between the two vegetables.
