New study confirms cognitive exercises boost math skills in young kids
If you struggled in math and worry your child will follow in your footsteps, take note: there's yet another piece of evidence showing anyone can be good at math!
A new large study published in the journal "Nature Human Behaviour" has found that young children who practice visual working memory and reasoning tasks improve their math skills. And because their math skills improved even more than children who focused on spatial rotation exercises, the researchers concluded that when it comes to math, the type of training matters.
As the study's author explains: "It is an important finding because it provides strong evidence that cognitive training transfers to an ability that is different from the one you practiced."
