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.

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

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.

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

A study in Math anxiety among students across various majors is presented.

Math anxiety is a phenomenon that has increased over the 20th century, especially in the US.While emotional and disease models have been used to explain the experience, social learningtheories have increasingly been used to explain causality. The cost of math anxiety is high forsocieties because career choices, including those that rely on higher education, can be influencedby its presence.

A team (The lead author is UChicago PhD candidate Gerardo Ramirez. Joining he and Beilock in the work are UChicago postdoctoral scholar Elizabeth Gunderson and Susan Levine, the Stella M. Rowley Professor in Psychology.) showed that a high degree of math anxiety undermined performance of otherwise successful students, placing them almost half a school year behind their less anxious peers, in terms of math achievement.

Dyscalculia comes in many forms, hence there is no silver bullet to cure it. The link we provide you today breaks it down in many small pieces. As you can see from the list, some are categories that really tie Dyslexia and Dyscalculia together. If someone can not understand or read the assignment, how can we then expect them to provide an answer that is only remotely good?
