Handbook of Mathematical Cognition by Jamie I.D. Campbell

By Jamie I.D. Campbell

How does the mind signify quantity and make mathematical calculations? What underlies the advance of numerical and mathematical talents? What elements impact the educational of numerical ideas and talents? What are the organic bases of quantity wisdom? Do people and different animals proportion related numerical representations and methods? What underlies numerical and mathematical disabilities and problems, and what's the diagnosis for rehabilitation? those questions are the area of mathematical cognition, the sphere of study eager about the cognitive and neurological strategies that underlie numerical and mathematical skills. The guide of Mathematical Cognition is a suite of 27 essays by way of best researchers that offers a complete evaluate of this significant learn box.
