Toll, Sylke W. M.; Kroesbergen, Evelyn H.; Van Luit, Johannes E. H. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Evidence exists that there are two main underlying cognitive factors in mathematical difficulties: working memory and number sense. It is suggested that real math difficulties appear when both working memory and number sense are weak, here referred to as the double deficit (DD) hypothesis. Aims: The aim of this study was to test the DD…
