Currently, the lab is investigating children’s beliefs about whether math ability is a stable trait, and how these beliefs relate to children’s age, gender, and interest in math. Additional research areas include how preschoolers develop exact and approximate understandings of number; how visuo-spatial skills relate to children’s number line knowledge; and how parents’ and teachers’ attitudes about math influence students’ math and spatial learning.

Specific projects:

  1. Longitudinal study on the specific links between spatial skills and numeracy
  2. Fraction intervention study
  3. Decimal study
