 German term or phrase: Mengenbegriffe The same school report, the notes on mathematics (the child is five years old). I'm struggling with the term in asterisks, all help appreciated. Many thanks in advance. "Er versteht es ***Mengenbegriffe*** zu erkennen und anzuwenden."

 English translation:quantitative concepts Explanation:Since "quantity" is one translation of "Menge", this would seem OK. "Mengenlehre" is "set theory", but I think "set-theoretic concepts" might be pushing things a bit for a five-year-old. Russell's Paradox? Axiom of Choice?
