Right-Brained Addition & Subtraction begins with number recognition and counting, and continues through single-digit computation, number patterns, number sense, and number families. Included are stylized numbers and a song that helps children relate number symbols with number names. Then there is the core of the Right-Brained series which is the visuals and patterns for the facts to 10. Most importantly, children don't do computation by counting, but rather by the "see and say" method. The visual background they receive with the games allows them this fluency with their facts. This detailed resource book is packed with 101 pages of handy blackline masters of worksheets, assessments, and overheads making lesson preparation a snap.

Right-Brained Place Value grows out of the work in Right-Brained Addition & Subtraction. Once the children know their facts to 10 on sight (very much like we want them to know their sight words) they are ready for multi-digit computation. The magic of this book and what sets it apart from other books is that all computation is based on the facts to 10. Students never have to add any facts larger than 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, or 5+5, or subtract anything other than 10 minus numbers 1-9! Children love doing big problems using this method because they no longer have to tediously count on their fingers. Right-Brained Place Value takes basic addition and subtraction into multi-digit computation, and includes strategies for word problems. This detailed resource book is packed with 155 pages of handy reproducibles of worksheets, assessments and overheads, making lesson preparation a snap. Total page count: 223.

Jeffrey Freed and Laurie Parsons provide an effective method for helping children with Attention Deficit Disorder excel in a classroom setting. In straightforward language, this book explains how to use the innovative "Learning Styles Inventory" to test for a right-brained learning style; help an ADD child master spelling—and build confidence—by committing complicated words to visual memory; tap an ADD kid's amazing speed-reading abilities by stressing sight recognition and scanning rather than phonics; access the child's capacity to solve math problems of increasing, often astonishing complexity—without pen or paper; capitalize on the "writing and weaning" technique to help the child turn mental images into written words; and win over teachers and principals to the right-brained approach the ADD child thrives on. For parents who have longed to help their ADD child quickly and directly, Freed and Parsons's approach is nothing short of revolutionary. This is the first book to offer them reason for hope and a clear strategy for enabling their child to blossom.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Right-Brained Time, Money, & Measurement

Author: Sarah K Major

Publisher: N.A

Category: Juvenile Nonfiction

Page: 132

View: 5775

This book is for children who are strongly visual, who learn all at once through pictures, are drawn to patterns, rely on body motions, and who need to understand the process behind each math problem they solve. In Time, Money, & Measurement, we start at the very beginning and increase in difficulty in each area. 1- We embed symbols in VISUALS so that the child can take a quick look, absorb the learning piece, and store it as an image to be retrieved intact later. 2- We use PERSONIFICATION which is a powerful element in teaching and learning. The use of personification makes for rapid learning because the very look and personality of the character conveys the substance of the learning. For example, Ollie Owl, Molly Mongoose, and Sammy Stork have personalities that help cement their function in children's memory. Ollie Hour is an owl who marks the hours and goes very slowly on his short legs. Molly Minute is a mongoose who ticks off the minutes, scuttling around the clock quickly. Sammy Second is a stork who swoops around the clock marking off the seconds. 3- We rely on PATTERN DISCOVERY as a way of making numbers come alive and as a means of conveying the amazing relationships between numbers. What results is number sense. Because the brain is a pattern seeking organ, it is drawn to material that follows patterns. 4- We use STORY to contain the meaning of what we are teaching in math. Stories, like visuals, make learning unforgettable. They explain the "why" behind math concepts and tie everything together, creating a vehicle for meaning and for recall. 5- We use BODY MOTION--both gesture and whole body movement that mirrors the symbol shape or the action in the math story (such as addition or subtraction). Again, body movement is a powerful agent for learning and remembering. For many people, body motion makes recall effortless if the learning piece is directly tied to a unique motion. 6- We employ VISUALIZATION--a powerful tool for right-brain-dominant learners. If these learmers are given time to transfer the image on the paper in front of them to their brains (prompt them to close their eyes and SEE it in their mind's eye), they will be able to retrieve that image later. If the image contains learning concepts, this is how they will remember what you want them to learn. So in this book, each time a visual is introduced, prompt the student(s) to "see" the image in their mind.

Mathematical Misconceptions

A Guide for Primary Teachers

View: 1377

How do children relate to numbers and mathematics? How can they be helped to understand and make sense of them? People are rarely ambivalent towards mathematics, having either a love or hate relationship with the subject, and our approach to it is influenced by a variety of factors. How we are taught mathematics as children plays a big role in our feelings towards it. Numbers play a large part in our lives, and it is therefore beneficial to inspire a positive attitude towards them at a young age. With contributors comprised of teachers, teacher educators, mathematicians and psychologists, Mathematical Misconceptions brings together information about pupils' work from four different countries, and looks at how children, from the ages of 3 - 11, think about numbers and use them. It explores the reasons for their successes, misunderstandings and misconceptions, while also broadening the reader's own mathematical knowledge. Chapters explore: - the seemingly paradoxical number zero - the concept of equality - children's perceptions and misconceptions of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing - the learning process - the ways in which children acquire number concepts. This unique book will transform the way in which primary school teachers think about mathematics. Fascinating reading for anyone working with children of this age, it will be of particular interest to teachers, trainee teachers and teaching assistants. It will show them how to engage children in the mysteries and delights of numbers.

Language, Music, and the Brain

A Mysterious Relationship

Author: Michael A. Arbib

Publisher: MIT Press

ISBN: 0262314134

Category: Science

Page: 680

View: 8247

This book explores the relationships between language, music, and the brain by pursuing four key themes and the crosstalk among them: song and dance as a bridge between music and language; multiple levels of structure from brain to behavior to culture; the semantics of internal and external worlds and the role of emotion; and the evolution and development of language. The book offers specially commissioned expositions of current research accessible both to experts across disciplines and to non-experts. These chapters provide the background for reports by groups of specialists that chart current controversies and future directions of research on each theme.The book looks beyond mere auditory experience, probing the embodiment that links speech to gesture and music to dance. The study of the brains of monkeys and songbirds illuminates hypotheses on the evolution of brain mechanisms that support music and language, while the study of infants calibrates the developmental timetable of their capacities. The result is a unique book that will interest any reader seeking to learn more about language or music and will appeal especially to readers intrigued by the relationships of language and music with each other and with the brain.Contributors: Francisco Aboitiz, Michael A.
