Project Description

Proficient mathematical learning represents a key aspect of academic achievement, and it is also an essential skill for a competitive workforce. In this light, there is the need to design and implement interventions to promote numerical skills in both children and adults. Moreover, training studies constitute a valuable methodology to assess the direct relation between different cognitive abilities and also evaluate the presence of near and far transfer of learning. A project would determine the effectiveness of short-term interventions in improving different numerical skills in children and adults.
