Praet, Magda; Desoete, Annemie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
The purpose of the present pilot study was to evaluate the effects of particular educational math games in kindergarten on numerical skills in Grade 1. Our participants were 49 children with early math difficulties, 65 average achievers, and 48 high-achieving 5-year-old children. All of them played various adaptive math games for 5 weeks. To avoid…

Kiss, Allyson J.; Christ, Theodore J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
Difficulties in reading and math are more likely to occur simultaneously than difficulties in either area alone; however, the research on that comorbidity is relatively sparse. The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between early reading skills as predictors of math achievement. A group of 102 kindergarten and 65 first-grade…

Lepola, Janne; Hannula-Sormunen, Minna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In this 3-year longitudinal study, we examined the interplay of children's motivational orientations, spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON) and number sequence and arithmetical skills from kindergarten (at age 6) to grade 1 (at age 7). We also examined the direct and indirect contributions of motivation and SFON to the acquisition of…

Simanowski, Stefanie; Krajewski, Kristin – Child Development, 2019
This study assessed the extent to which executive functions (EF), according to their factor structure in 5-year-olds (N = 244), influenced early quantity-number competencies, arithmetic fluency, and mathematics school achievement throughout first and second grades. A confirmatory factor analysis resulted in updating as a first, and inhibition and…

Kiss, Allyson J.; Nelson, Gena; Christ, Theodore J. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Despite the vast research on the early predictors of mathematics achievement, little research has investigated the predictors of various domains of mathematics (e.g., geometry, statistics). The purpose of the present study was to examine the predictive relation between first-grade early numeracy and computation skills and third-grade mathematics…

O'Connor, Patrick A.; Morsanyi, Kinga; McCormack, Teresa – Developmental Science, 2018
Ordinality is a fundamental feature of numbers and recent studies have highlighted the role that number ordering abilities play in mathematical development (e.g., Lyons et al. 2014), as well as mature mathematical performance (e.g., Lyons & Beilock, 2011). The current study tested the novel hypothesis that non-numerical ordering ability, as…

Fanari, Rachele; Meloni, Carla; Massidda, Davide – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2018
This study aimed to investigate the relationship between different components of active visuospatial working memory and math ability in young children. In a longitudinal study, we compared the contributions of active visual and spatial working memory (WM) tasks in early math performance at two times: the beginning of the first class of primary…

Wong, Terry T.-Y.; Ho, Connie S.-H.; Tang, Joey – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
Developmental dyscalculia (DD) is a specific learning disability in mathematics that affects around 6% of the population. Currently, the core deficit of DD remains unknown. While the number sense deficit hypothesis suggests that the core deficit of DD lies in the inability to represent nonsymbolic numerosity, the access deficit hypothesis suggests…

Scheuer, Nora; Santamaria, Flavia Irene; Echenique, Mónica Haydée – Early Child Development and Care, 2017
The aim of this study is to achieve a deeper understanding of the repertoire of cognitive resources children can display in the process of learning numbers. Forty-two children attending Age 4 Kindergarten Class or Year-One in Argentina were individually interviewed, based on a semi-structured script requiring them to represent definite and…

Hawes, Zachary; Moss, Joan; Caswell, Beverly; Naqvi, Sarah; MacKinnon, Sharla – Cognition and Instruction, 2017
This study describes the implementation and effects of a 32-week teacher-led spatial reasoning intervention in K-2 classrooms. The intervention targeted spatial visualization skills as an integrated feature of regular mathematics instruction. Compared to an active control group, children in the spatial intervention demonstrated gains in spatial…

Lembke, Erica; Lee, Young Sun; Park, Yoon Soo; Hampton, David – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
This article describes a study addressing how Curriculum-Based Measurement mathematics measures function as screening tools for students in grades Kindergarten through 2 over time, and for students in different demographic groups. Specifically, the research questions were: (1) What growth rates are produced for Curriculum-Based Measurement early…

Lee, Young-Sun; Lembke, Erica – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
The present study examined the technical adequacy of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) measure of early numeracy for kindergarten through third grade students. Our CBM measures were developed to reflect broad and theoretically derived categories of mathematical thinking: quick retrieval, written computation, and number sense. The mastery of these…

Lysenko, Larysa; Rosenfield, Steven; Dedic, Helena; Savard, Annie; Idan, Einat; Abrami, Philip C.; Wade, C. Anne; Naffi, Nadia – Journal of Information Technology Education: Innovations in Practice, 2016
The pilot research presented here explores the classroom use of Emerging Literacy in Mathematics (ELM) software, a research-based bilingual interactive multimedia instructional tool, and its potential to develop emerging numeracy skills. At the time of the study, a central theme of early mathematics curricula, "Number Concept," was fully…

Aragón, Estíbaliz; Navarro, José I.; Aguilar, Manuel – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2016
Introduction: This study analyses the predictive role of several specific components of early numerical skills on the fluency calculation. Method: A total of 122 students (Mean age = 69.89 months; SD = 3.44), 54 girls and 68 boys participated in the study. The early numeracy skills were assessed by the end of pre primary school education, and…

Peng, Peng; Namkung, Jessica Min; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn; Patton, Sam; Yen, Loulee; Compton, Donald L.; Zhang, Wenjuan; Miller, Amanda; Hamlett, Carol – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This study explored factors that are associated with calculation development among 176 children at-risk for learning difficulties. Data were collected on working memory, language, non-verbal reasoning, processing speed, decoding, numerical competence, incoming calculation, SES, and gender at the beginning of 1st grade and on calculations over 4…
