By Ann Dowker
Standards in numeracy are a relentless predicament to academic policy-makers. besides the fact that, why are adjustments in arithmetical functionality so marked? In Individual variations in Arithmetic, Ann Dowker seeks to supply a greater knowing of why those alterations in skill exist, encouraging a extra proficient method of tackling numeracy difficulties.
This booklet reports latest learn through the writer and via others as regards to arithmetical skill and offers powerful facts to aid a componential view of mathematics. Focusing totally on teenagers, yet together with dialogue of arithmetical cognition in fit adults and neuropsychological sufferers, all the significant parts of arithmetic is coated. inside of this quantity, findings from developmental, academic, cognitive and neuropsychological reviews are built-in in a different procedure. This booklet covers topics such as:
- Counting and the significance of person differences.
- Arithmetic proof, systems and assorted types of memory.
- Causes of, and interventions with, mathematical difficulties.
- The results of tradition, language and experience.
The academic implications of those findings are mentioned intimately, revealing unique insights that might be of serious curiosity to these learning or studying within the components of schooling, neuroscience and developmental and cognitive psychology.
