The importance of working memory in children with Dyscalculia and Ageometria
Palavras-chave:dyscalculia, working memory, VisuoSpatial Sketchpad, short- term memory, cen-tral executive, semantic loop, phonological loop, mathematic anxiety
This article is a literature review about Dyscalculia and Ageometria which are part of specific learning disabilities (LD) in Mathematics. Initially, some possible causes of LD are presented. Types of dyscalculia are then listed and the article goes on focusing on Working Memory (WM) and Mathematical Anxiety which play an important role in students’ performance in Mathematics.
