Not specific to students with dyscalculia but here is a good way to work on student’s understanding of graphs and data analysis:
The Slow Reveal Graph (#slowrevealgraph) is an instructional routine that promotes sensemaking about data. This highly engaging routine uses scaffolded visuals and discourse to help students make sense of data. As more and more of the graph is revealed, students refine their interpretation and construct meaning, often in surprising ways. This routine increases access for students without sacrificing rigor or engagement.
This study investigated if developmental dyscalculia (DD) in children with different profiles of mathematical deficits has the same or different cognitive origins. The defective approximate number system hypothesis and the access deficit hypothesis were tested using two different groups of children with DD (11–13 years old): a group with arithmetic fact dyscalculia (AFD) and a group with general dyscalculia (GD).
Number Processing and Heterogeneity of Developmental Dyscalculia
The detection of learning disabilities is still tedious and time consuming and a deep research is required for the simplification of the same. Dyscalculia is one of the Specific learning Disorders (SLD) with a specific impairment in Mathematics. Early detection of Dyscalculia is one of these tedious, time consuming tasks.
Read in our link for today how they use machine learning to handle and improve this.
We are linking here to the education week magazine, where they let guest bloggers Jamie M. Carroll, associate project director for the National Mindset Innovation Network, and David Yeager, psychology professor at the University of Texas at Austin, talk about the growth mindset and how to work with it when you are teaching remote. This is the third piece in a small series so you may want to find the earlier postings too.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addressing maths anxiety. Researchers have developed many (relatively simple) strategies to support the reduction of maths anxiety. My own approach when providing professional development workshops for educational professionals is to provide a toolkit in which strategies can be selected, tried and combined in ways that suit the individual and situation.
Apparently the teacher test in Australia is quite a hurdle. Well now you can try your hand at it, see our link for today and scroll down a bit for the numeracy part of it.
It is good to have teachers with some understanding of math, certainly if they will be teaching children math and definitively when they will have to work with students who have dyscalculia. So how fair is this test?
There are not enough Dyscalculia Tutors for the students who have this unknown math learning disability. Dr Schreuder had designed an online Dyscalculia Tutor Training. Check out the details in our link for today and consider signing up to learn how to help students with dyscalculia.
In Kundalini Yogic philosophy, dyslexia (and perhaps dyscalculia) are viewed as a disorder of internal communication. One part of the brain does not convey information correctly to another part. The remedy: practice a specific Kundalini yoga kriya every day.
A kriya in Kundalini yoga is a combination of posture, head position, hand placement, eye placement, breathing and / or mantra recitation.
