ab: Summary: This study assessed the relation between long-term memory
retrieval and mathematics calculation and mathematics problem solving
achievement among elementary, middle, and high school students in
nationally representative sample of US students, when controlling for
fluid and crystallized intelligence, short-term memory, and processing
speed. As hypothesized, structural equation modeling comparing
elementary school students and middle and high school students revealed
that long-term retrieval skills became a better predictor of both
mathematics calculation and mathematics problem solving as age and
grade increased. Future research should focus on the effectiveness of
interventions to improve long-term retrieval skills in general, and
arithmetic facts retrieval and problem solving procedures in
particular, at all grades, including high school.
