Students need visualization

The summer slide is coming

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The school year is almost over. It is usually met with mixed feelings. Parents need to take care of their children during the day while work also needs attention, kids miss their pals from school but love not being in class, travel and seeing places and old friends, and it goes on for months.

The problem with al of this is that on average the children loose about 3 months of their hard work in studying math over the summer holiday. We call that the summer slide.

Certainly children with Dyscalculia, who need constant repeat instructions anyway, are at risk to loose lots of valuable knowledge and the start of the new school year will be ever so harder.

Some children go to summer school depending on their eligibility for it but if you are not in that category, consider to have your child regularly work a bit on math. If you don’t know how or what to do, contact us and we’ll help you out.

The debate on twitter

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

What if you just eliminated high school math entirely and replaced it with an extra science course each year? The science course would teach math but within the context of the science. The more I think about it the more I like the idea.

Interesting thought, but others say:

Part of the beauty of mathematics is theory apart from any particular application. I worry that if we offload mathematics instruction into science classrooms, this point will be lost. Mathematics, like art, can have value when it doesn’t have any obvious application.
