Digging into the Approximate number system

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Researchers assessed the relation between 4-year-old children’s performance on a non-symbolic numerical comparison task, a non-symbolic approximate addition task, and a standardized symbolic math assessment. Our results indicate that ANS acuity and ANS manipulability each contribute unique variance to preschooler’s early math achievement, and this result holds after controlling for both IQ and executive functions. These findings suggest that there are multiple routes by which the ANS influences math achievement. Therefore, interventions that target both the precision and manipulability of the ANS may prove to be more beneficial for improving symbolic math skills compared to interventions that target only one of these factors.

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.

Shocking solution for Math Anxiety

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

For people who break out in sweat when thinking about doing math a solution maybe nearby:

For people who have a really hard time doing math, “their brain is not functioning properly” in the area that governs this ability, explained Dr. Cohen Kadosh. “They have abnormalities in the anatomy … and they have lower activation” in part of the brain.

Using electrical current to simulate the brain, he said, “is just like giving the neurons an energy drink so they are able to perform much better.”

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.

See the message from Jo Boaler about a study they did to prove that when teachers work on changing children’s mindset the kids DO make more progress than their control group. This is just another piece of evidence that teachers would do well to work on the mindset for great results.

Is it Anxiety or Dyscalculia? Or both?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

“Maths anxiety is often confused with dyscalculia, or maths disability,” says Trupti Talekar, a Mumbai-based clinical psychologist. “Emotional disturbance that negatively affects the child’s maths performance is what constitutes maths anxiety. (On the other hand) dyscalculia is an academic disability: a skill deficit that has a neurological basis. Both can occur separately or together.”

The approach from Finland

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

As part of her doctorate, Lopez-Pedersen is working on a research project where she and colleagues have created and coordinated supplementary measures for first-graders who have problems with mathematics. Lopez-Pedersen says it’s critical to start as early as possible with children who need help with maths skills.

“A number of studies show that children with low maths skills continue to struggle and never catch up. We also know when it’s most effective to help these kids: Students develop their math skills a lot during the early school years, which is something we also see in reading research,” she says.
