    When giving a child 2 differing quantities, adults often seem to ask, “Which is more?” So it’s not surprising that kids use the word “more” more often than “less”. It was interesting to me when I heard the statement that this reflects in student comfort working with addition/subtraction, and multiplication/division later on.

    The word “less” doesn’t seem as common in everyday language as “more” is.
