Early mathematical competencies and later outcomes: Insights from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children
Analysis of individual growth trajectories suggests that in fact early mathematics predicts the initial (Year 3) level, but not subsequent growth, which suggests that early mathematical competences are important for enhancing outcomes in early schooling, but that the quality of mathematics education provided in the schooling years is critical for future development.
Predictive Power of Sixth-Grade Achievement on Secondary Chemistry Academic Outcomes
The purpose of this study was to identify student level characteristics that predicted both enrollment and achievement in 10th-grade chemistry courses. We obtained a large representative sample from
Improving preschoolers’ mathematics achievement with tablets: a randomized controlled trial
With a randomized field experiment of 433 preschoolers, we tested a tablet mathematics program designed to increase young children’s mathematics learning. Intervention students played Math Shelf, a


School readiness and later achievement.
A meta-analysis of the results shows that early math skills have the greatest predictive power, followed by reading and then attention skills, while measures of socioemotional behaviors were generally insignificant predictors of later academic performance.
Early math matters: kindergarten number competence and later mathematics outcomes.
Although low-income children performed more poorly than their middle-income counterparts in mathematics achievement and progressed at a slower rate, their performance and growth were mediated through relatively weak kindergarten number competence.

Simulation results suggest that recently developed correctives for missing data can mitigate problems that stem from nonnormal data.
Academic Content, Student Learning, and the Persistence of Preschool Effects
Little research has examined the relationship between academic content coverage in kindergarten and student achievement. Using nationally representative data, we examine the association between
Early predictors of middle school fraction knowledge.
Analysis of longitudinal data indicated that whole number magnitude knowledge in first grade predicted knowledge of fraction magnitudes in middle school, controlling for whole number arithmetic proficiency, domain general cognitive abilities, parental income and education, race, and gender.
A Number Sense Intervention for Low-Income Kindergartners at Risk for Mathematics Difficulties
The present study examined the effects of an 8-week number sense intervention to develop number competencies of low-income kindergartners, which purposefully targeted whole number concepts related to counting, comparing, and manipulating sets.
Adolescents’ Functional Numeracy Is Predicted by Their School Entry Number System Knowledge
In all, this work identified specific beginning of schooling numerical knowledge that contributes to individual differences in adolescents’ functional numeracy and demonstrated that performance on mathematical achievement tests underestimates the importance of this early knowledge.
