"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein

Letters or numbers?

I have struggled with math.  I can remember my father helping me with math homework in my primary years.  They are not happy memories as he was frustrated that I couldn’t get it as easily as my siblings.  I recently stumbled upon an article about dyscalculia which explains my preferences to processing words over numbers.  Dyscalculia is a learning disability with math just as dyslexia is a learning disability in reading.    Dr. Daniel Ansari, a neuroscientist is on it.  He’s studying this to get a better understanding of the root causes in the brain that make up math learning.  Hopefully, it will lead to better educational techniques for those of us that see math like the lady below.   By the way, being diagnosed with either disability has nothing to do with intelligence levels.   All brains can adapt, overcome, and learn…that’s a key element in why I call the organ “blessed brain.”523056_369319099823045_13774885_n
