Our Next Study Group will meet

Exact address and copies of the articles for discussion will be emailed after RSVP.
The incidence of mathematics disability or dyscalculia is comparable to dyslexia. Sir Winston Churchill suffered from difficulties with math in school - not difficulties with reading, as is commonly thought. Learning math requires being "math literate," understanding the numerical system and successfully using rules to make calculations. We will examine the findings and theories in two articles, one on math fluency and one comparing the teaching of math and reading.
We welcome educators, parents, and interested adults. Our discussions include the sharing of practical and personal experiences and responses that relate to the research topic.
