Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Zippert, Erica L.; Boice, Katherine L. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Because math knowledge begins to develop at a young age to varying degrees, it is important to identify foundational cognitive and academic skills that might contribute to its development. The current study focused on two important, but often overlooked skills that recent evidence suggests are important contributors to early math development:…
