(p.170) Chapter 6 Deafness, Numerical Cognition, and Mathematics
Deaf Cognition

Rebecca Bull

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines recent findings about the development of numerical cognition in hearing individuals to understand the observed lag in arithmetical and mathematical performance of deaf children and adults. It discusses how the information processing strategies of deaf individuals may influence the learning, representation, and retrieval of numerical and mathematical knowledge. The focus is on basic numerical processes that underlie mathematics and that subsequently feed into our understanding of related topics in science and technology.

Keywords:   mathematical ability, learning, deaf children, deaf adults, numerical cognition, information processing, enumeration, estimation, number line
