Acquisition of Complex Arithmetic Skills and Higher-Order Mathematics Conceptsfocuses on typical and atypical learning of complex arithmetic skills and higher-order math concepts. As part of the seriesMathematical Cognition and Learning,this volume covers recent advances in the understanding of children's developing competencies with whole-number arithmetic, fractions, and rational numbers. Each chapter covers these topics from multiple perspectives, including genetic disorders, cognition, instruction, and neural networks.

  • Covers innovative measures and recent methodological advances in mathematical thinking and learning
  • Contains contributions that improve instruction and education in these domains
  • Informs policy aimed at increasing the level of mathematical proficiency in the general public
David C. Geary is a cognitive developmental and evolutionary psychologist at the University of Missouri. He has wide ranging interests but his primary areas of research and scholarly work are children's mathematical cognition and learning and Darwin's sexual selection as largely but not solely related to human sex differences.Professor...
