Unlocking Your Student's Math Potential

In honor of April being Math Awareness Month, LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the largest personal brain training company in the world, is sharing five common myths about math. Armed with an understanding about the potential for ANY student to excel in math, parents can make more informed decisions about how to unlock their student’s full potential in the subject.


            MYTH #1: Some people are just destined to always be bad at math.

            MYTH #2: Classroom modifications are the best way to help kids with math struggles.

            MYTH #3: Children who struggle with math always benefit from a tutor.

            MYTH #4: The most common causes of math struggles are low motivation and inadequate instruction.

            MYTH #5: Dyscalculia is a permanent diagnosis.


            “None of these statements are true,” says LearningRx CEO Kim Hanson. “Most people with dyscalculia—which is a broad term used to describe difficulty with numbers—have poor visual processing and memory skills, two skills that can be targeted with one-on-one brain training. Classroom modifications often don’t do anything to address the problem and tutoring is usually best when children fall behind in math due to an extended absence, not when they struggle due to weak cognitive skills.”

            Cognitive skills are the foundational tools we use to think, learn and remember. They include logic & reasoning, auditory and visual processing, memory, attention, and processing speed.        

            Once the weak brain skills are identified with a Brain Skills Assessment, they can be targeted with intensive one-on-one brain training. Unlike digital brain games, personalized brain training uses fun but challenging mental exercises and incorporates immediate feedback, intensity, and loading, among other features, to work on brain skills.
