Development of early mathematical skills

There are several mathematical skills that start to develop already in early childhood, and which have been found to be crucial for good math achievement later on at school. In the iSeeNumbers project, we are interested in finding out

  • how these early mathematical skills develop from first to third grade

  • what kind of individual differences there are in the development, and

  • which mathematical skills, or other factors (e.g., motivation) predict best the later mathematics achievement.


Here we provide a brief description of the mathematical skills that we investigate in the project:
