What is it about?
The current study investigates how cognitive abilities and component skills (i.e., math computation) relate to math problem solving across differing age groups across school-aged development.

Why is it important?
Few studies have looked at cognitive abilities and how they relate to math problem solving in conjunction with the effects of math computation. Since more higher-order skills such as math problem solving involve a hierarchical set of scaffolded math skills, involving the component skill of math computation can give a fuller picture of the relations between cognitive abilities and math problem solving.
