Researchers from Japan's Hokkaido University compare 6 year old children’s ease with oral and written math problems to see if children's accuracy and comfort with math would be determined by their culture.
Researchers found that 4- to 9-year-old kids knew more about how animals are classified after a four-day camp at a zoo. It wasn’t that children who attended just knew more facts about animals, the researchers noted. The camp actually improved how they organized what they knew – a key component of learning.
