About this product
- DescriptionThis is a short, highly accessible book that explains what is kwn about how people learn math, what causes differences in how children learn math, what math disabilities mean, and how teachers can address the needs of students of all ages and abilities. This book makes recent scientific research about the brain circuitry and thought processes related to mathematics available and accessible to the teachers and psychologists who deal with students' daily frustration. Written from the perspectives of a clinical psychologist and a middle school teacher, this important book discusses rmal math cognition, typical math learning difficulties, severe mathematical disability, and the math deficits of students with better-kwn learning disorders. It features guidelines for assessing math learning problems, and also includes clinical case illustrations as regular examples. Throughout the text there is an emphasis on teaching, featuring many examples from and ideas for the classroom, and the final chapter is fully dedicated to addressing educational implications, incorporating the recent recommendations of the National Math Advisory Panel.
- Author BiographyNancy Krasa, Ph.D., is a practicing clinical psychologist with more than 25 yearsa experience in psychological, neuropsychological, and psychoeducational evaluation. She has served on the adjunct faculties of the colleges of medicine at Cornell University, New York University, and The Ohio State University. Dr. Krasa is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and has published articles in the fields of psychiatric and psychoeducational diagnosis. She received her bachelor of arts degree in mathematics from Smith College and her doctorate in clinical psychology from New York University. She and her husband live in Columbus, Ohio, and have three grown children. Sara Shunkwiler, M.Ed., taught middle school at Marburn Academy, a private school in Columbus, Ohio, for bright children who learn differently. She is currently teaching Pre- Algebra and Algebra in a public school setting and has worked with many students who have varying degrees of math difficulty. Prior to entering teaching, she was an engineer, a career she chose when she placed third in a schoolwide algebra contest and discovered she was a good at math.a Her team won the state competition, and the three women on that team went on to graduate at the top of their engineering classes at The Ohio State University. Ms. Shunkwiler also earned a master of science degree in ceramic engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For 12 years, she worked as a product development and test engineer with General Motors and received three United States patents during that time. She left engineering to share her love of mathematics and science with students in the pivotal middle school years, and she earned a master of education degree in middle childhood mathematics and science education from The Ohio State University. She and her husband, also a ceramic engineer, live in Frederick, Maryland, with their two teenage sons.
