Recent accounts in developmental psychology emphasize reciprocal relationships between factors – for example a child’s cognitive skills may affect their mathematical development and mathematical education can enhance the development of cognitive skills. Understanding such reciprocal relationships is required to advance developmental psychology and improve the basis for educational policies.
