Dyscalculia and Music

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

how can design increase access and reduce friction for the widest number of people?

That was the challenge for the designers entering the contest. Eventually the team won with this project:

Dyscalculia impacts our ability to understand numbers, keep a schedule, tell time, and even be able to judge how far away an object is. Music and categorization exercises tend to help those with dyscalculia improve their skills. With this in mind, the team created a tool to help people with dyscalculia learn how to play music: a projection-mapping application that displays color on a piano keyboard and corresponding colors on digital sheet music.

Using finger counting is not all bad

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

See what Jo Boaler has to say about it:

Stopping students from using their fingers when they count could, according to the new brain research, be akin to halting their mathematical development. Fingers are probably one of our most useful visual aids, and the finger area of our brain is used well into adulthood. The need for and importance of finger perception could even be the reason that pianists, and other musicians, often display higher mathematical understanding than people who don’t learn a musical instrument.

Memorization vs Automaticity

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

We’ve all heard it before; kids don’t know their math facts! While this may be true for some students, what is more important than simply memorizing multiplication facts is building a conceptual understanding of what multiplication means, how to visualize multiplication and eventually, helping students to generate their own algorithms for multiplication BEFORE they encounter any standard algorithms.
