Alarcon, Maricela; Knopik, Valerie S.; DeFries, John C.
Journal of School Psychology, v38 n1 p63-77 Jan-Feb 2000
Assesses the etiology of the covariation between mathematics performance and general cognitive ability in data from a sample of 555 twins selected for learning deficits and from a sample of 570 control twins pairs. Results show that the phenotypic relationship between mathematics and general cognitive ability is due primarily to genetic influences. (Author/MKA)
