Connect math to the real world

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Thanks to @MrOrr_geek   who shares with us some lessons connected to real life. It is important to keep your lessons connected to something the children can relate to. With all the fancy lesson plans and shiny new technology it may sometimes be overwhelming for students and they may be able to do the lesson but not see the connection with real life. The lesson in the link for today are great and will solve that issue.

No Evidence for Systematic White Matter Correlates of Dyslexia and Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A very interesting study has been completed. They compared people with dyslexia, dyscalculia, both and neither. They focused on the corona radiata and the arcuate fasciculus, two tracts associated with reading and mathematics in a number of previous studies. Using Bayesian hypothesis testing, they showed that the data showed no differences between groups for these particular tracts, a finding that seems to go against the current view in other studies.
This outcome, if confirmed, suggest that structural differences associated with dyslexia and dyscalculia might not be as reliable as previously thought, and this may have some impact on how we approach remediation.
