A Review of Factors Associated with Young Children's Difficulties in Acquiring Age-Appropriate Mathematical Abilities.
Evans, Roy; Goodman, Kathy
Early Child Development and Care, v114 p81-95 Sep 1995
Analyzes the factors behind children's learning difficulties in mathematics from three kinds of characteristics: characteristics of the child, of the teacher/teaching method, and of the subject. Suggests that perceived underachievement comes mainly from poor self-image, learning style, poor language skills, dyslexic-type difficulties, lack of mathematics experiences at home, different cultural backgrounds, gender differences, and dyscalculia.
