The Use of Chronological Age and a Physiological Determinant of Readiness for Formal Arithmetic Computation for First Grade Children.
Baust, Joseph A., Sr.; Davis, Arnold
This study was designed to determine whether chronological age, the number of permanent teeth erupted, or the combination of the two would predict a child's readiness for formal arithmetic work. Sixty-four children were randomly chosen and three phases of testing conducted. The findings did not support the use of the number of teeth erupted as a physiological predictor of readiness. Readiness for formal arithmetic computational skills was not judged with any confidence by chronological age. (MK)
