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

Dana Miller-Cotto
Learning Research & Development Center, University of Pittsburgh

Dana Miller-Cotto studies 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 work tests such theories within various contexts, and focuses on how these associations may differ according to important demographic variables.
