The dynamics of cognition: An ACT-R model of cognitive arithmetic

  title={The dynamics of cognition: An ACT-R model of cognitive arithmetic},
  author={Christian Lebiere},
Cognitive arithmetic studies the mental representation of numbers and arithmetic facts and the processes that create, access, and manipulate them. The contradiction between the apparent straightforwardness of its exact formal structure and the difficulties that every child faces in mastering it provides an important window into human cognition. An ACT-R model is proposed which accounts for the central results of the field through a single simulation of a lifetime of arithmetic learning. The use… CONTINUE READING
