# Mathematical and Cognitive Development

## We explore the development of children's thinking, particularly in the domain of mathematics and we focus on questions like:

## • What are the processes and concepts children use as they solve mathematical problems?

##

## • How does mathematical thinking develop and how do children differ from one another in how they acquire knowledge and skill?

##

## • How can instruction be designed so that mathematical learning can be optimized?
