Asking for help

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

It is not always easy to ask for help when you have dyscalculia and you have not been diagnosed or understood until now. Read this piece from a forum. Best quote:

‘Ask for help’ seems to be everyone’s favorite phrase, like it’s some kind of magic chant that will suddenly allow me to comprehend numbers and equations. But, it really isn’t easy for me to ask for help. Because of what my dad and other people have told me my whole life, my math confidence is absolutely crushed and I struggle to even answer things in class that I know because I think that I’ll just get it wrong and peole will laugh at me. It’s no help when all of my friend are extremely good at math either.

Math and statistics anxiety

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A good blog post that highlights the problems at colleges with students who need to pass math or statistics exams and have a problem with anxiety.

The best quote:

 -I think making course delivery student focused as well as student led would encourage students to share responsibility for their education. Focusing on connecting with students and being perceptive as well as receptive to students’ feedback and willing to revise teaching delivery can enhance the learning climate in teaching rooms. This would promote student interaction and encourage active learning.

Math Anxiety, it runs in the family

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A team of researchers led by UChicago psychologists Sian Beilock and Susan Levine found that children of math-anxious parents learned less math over the school year and were more likely to be math-anxious themselves—but only when these parents provided frequent help on the child’s math homework. – See more at: http://news.uchicago.edu/article/2015/08/10/parents-math-anxiety-can-undermine-children-s-math-achievement#sthash.tRINI4Xy.gh0WKHuz.dpuf

Stop using Flash Cards, certainly for kids with dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Stanford University’s Jo Boaler says teachers and parents should stop using math flash cards, stop drilling kids in addition and multiplication and especially stop forcing students to do calculations quickly under time pressure.

Good-bye Mad Minute Mondays, where teachers hand out quiz sheets with 50 problems to be completed in less than a minute. But wait – doesn’t everyone have to learn times tables? No, says Boaler.

Although her position is unorthodox, Boaler, an education professor and researcher, has spent a career trying to prove why it is the best way for kids to learn.

Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative helps dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Fear of math represents not personal failure or a missing gene but wrongheaded “one-size-fits-all” ways of teaching. That, at least, is the theory behind a quiet revolution in math education incubated in the Bay Area that is exciting teachers even more than an elegant proof of the Pythagorean theorem.

A vanguard of math instructors is embracing ideas developed by two Stanford professors to reform math instruction. more HERE
