Sowell, Evelyn J.; And Others
Gifted Child Quarterly, v34 n4 p147-54 Fall 1990
This paper summarizes and critiques the empirical research of the 1970s and 1980s on identification processes and descriptions of mathematically gifted students, both precocious students who score well on tests and overlooked students with unique ways of doing mathematics. The paper describes students' family backgrounds, behaviors, cognitive characteristics, and affective characteristics. (Author/JDD)
