The results of the present investigation indicated that nonretarded children's knowledge of time and money generally increases with grade level. Furthermore, on the basis of the items reported by Probst in 1931, it appears that the knowledge level of nonretarded children has remained relatively constant over the past 40 years. Without specific instruction other than that possibly found in mathematics textbooks, the knowledge that retarded individuals have of time and money is below that of nonretarded children of a similar mental age.
