How the Brain Learns Mathematics 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
As a retired math teacher I was skeptical about a book that would exlain how the brain learns mathematics. But I was very much intrigued by the author's explanations of recent research in this area, especially number sense. I taught math for 25 years, yet I still learned a lot from this book. Of particular value are the teaching strategies that the author suggests that are based on the research. I also found the section on math anxiety to be very illuminating. it almost made me want to go back to the classroom and try some of the author's suggestilons for lowering math anxiety in my students. It's a terrific book, and any teacher of math, regardless of grade level, should have it and use it.
