Summary
Language and Culture in Mathematical Cognition, Fourth Edition focuses on the role of linguistic and cultural factors in math cognition and development. It covers a wide range of topics, including analogical mapping in numerical development, arithmetic fact retrieval in the bilingual brain, cross-cultural comparisons of mathematics achievement, the shaping of numerical processing by number word construction, the influence of Head Start programs, the mathematical skills of children with specific language impairments, the role of culture and language in creating associations between number and space, and electrophysiological studies of linguistic traces in core knowledge at the neural level. Includes cutting-edge findings, innovative measures, recent methodological advances and groundbreaking theoretical developments -- Synthesizes research from various subdomains of math cognition research -- Covers the full complement of research in mathematical thinking and learning -- Informs researchers, scholars, educators, students and policymakers . -- Provided by publisher.
