I'd really like to quote a source--that cites the findings of other research--in its entirety. However, I can't even begin to know how to go about this. Here's the text I'd like to quote as well as the footnotes (indicated by numerals) with their references. What the heck should I do? For my purposes, it's perfect as written. What do you recommend? TIA:) Mathematical thinking is cognitively foundational1, and children’s early knowledge of math strongly predicts their later success in math.2 More surprising is that preschool mathematics knowledge predicts achievement even into high school.3 Most surprising is that it also predicts later reading achievement even better than early reading skills.4 In fact, research shows that doing more mathematics increases oral language abilities, even when measured during the following school year. These include vocabulary, inference, independence, and grammatical complexity.5 Given the importance of mathematics to academic success in all subjects6, all children need a robust knowledge of mathematics in their earliest years. 1D.H.
