Toward an Understanding of Working Memory and Math Performance Inside and Outside the Classroom

Dana Miller-Cotto discusses factors and opportunities that shape children’s readiness in math and science by applying a psychological, ecological systems theory. In this lecture, she will discuss her longitudinal research testing current theories about why working memory has long been associated with math performance. Her ongoing works tests such theories within various contexts, and focuses how these associations may differ according to important demographic variables.
