Dyscalculia: News from the web:
Great research done by H Moriah Sokolowski 1 2, Rebecca Merkley 3, Sarah Samantha Bray Kingissepp 2, Praja Vaikuntharajan 2, Daniel Ansari 2
The ‘Build-A-Train’ task was developed and used to examine whether children spontaneously use a number or physical size approach on an un-cued matching task. In the Build-A-Train task, an experimenter assembles a train using one to five blocks of a particular length and asks the child to build the same train. The child’s blocks differ in length from the experimenter’s blocks, causing the child to build a train that matches based on either the number of blocks or length of the train, as it is not possible to match on both.
The Build-A-Train task and findings from this current study set a foundation for future longitudinal research to investigate the causal relationship between children’s acquisition of symbolic mathematical concepts and attention to number.
