Graspable math?

Posted on January 23, 2018


Okay, just dropped bike blog post into wrong place but I’ll move it later…

Yesterday I got  an article about “adapting perception, action and technology for mathematical reasoning” sent to me.

Lots of scientific defense of the way our brains adapt and different parts do different kinds of processing, such as the way people who are blind generate “visual” models in the brain… from auditory stimulus, and that anybody *can* adapt and learn.

Shhh… don’t tell the anti-learning-style zealots!   This article is a well-cited analysis, basically, of how a lot of our math ‘reasoning’ is tied into visual-kinesthetic learning.  These folks have put together resources for making math “tangible.”

Now to finish the article and explore for a bit.   I really, really wish I could connect w/ people who know from math and dyslexia & learning disabilities about this one…
