Parental factors and home environment found to play a role in student math abilities
A pair of researchers at the University of Sussex has found that the kind of relationship a child has with his or her parents can have a major impact on how well they do in learning math at school. In their paper published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, Danielle Evans and Andy Field describe their study of data from an ongoing research effort aimed at learning about how children grow up in the U.K. and what they learned from it.
