Abstract

Previous research has shown that the performance of children on arithmetic tests was predictable based on their performance on neuro-psychological tests. In this study an experiment was conducted on 5-6 year old children (N=48) to clarify the relationship between finger dexterity and numerical abilities. The results showed a significant correlations between finger dexterity and numerical abilities. In addition, the findings remained significant after partialing out the effects of age and performance test scores, or age and short-term memory capacity scores. Moreover, the correlation coefficient between finger dexterity and numerical abilities was greater than the correlation coefficient between short-term memory capacity and numerical abilities. These finding suggested that the relationship between finger dexterity and numerical abilities among preschool children were stronger than was indicated by previous findings.
