DailyDirt: Doing Math In Your Head

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Math might not be the easiest subject for some students, but there might be different ways of teaching it that could make it more tolerable for kids. The more we learn about how our brains process math problems, the better we can teach ourselves how to tackle math education. There's a lot of concern over how Americans can compete in a global economy if our kids don't have some pretty basic math skills. Maybe some of these findings will help students pick up some much needed math skills. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
