Psychology's Role in Mathematics and Science Education

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Newcombe, N.S., N. Ambady, Jacquelynne S. Eccles, L. Gomez, D. Klahr, M. Linn, K. Miller, and K. Mix. 2009. "Psychology's Role in Mathematics and Science Education." American Psychologist, 64(6): 538-550.

Improving mathematics and science education in the United States has been a matter of national concern for over half a century. Psychology has a vital role to play in this enterprise. In this article, the authors review the kinds of contributions that psychology can make in four areas: (a) early understanding of mathematics, (b) understanding of science, (c) social and motivational aspects of involvement in mathematics and science, and (d) assessment of learning in mathematics and science. They also examine challenges to psychology's playing a central and constructive role and make recommendations for overcoming those challenges.
