Math and Dyscalculia Services – About us. Dyscalculia Services was founded in 2010 by dr. A.M. Schreuder. Dr. Schreuder follows and implements the latest research on the subject of learning differences and best practices for intervention. She volunteered at Neuhaus and a fMRI study at UT and was trained as a reading tutor at UT. Unlike for dyslexia, where there is an abundance of good information for parents and teachers, dyscalculia is relatively new and unknown. She loves to promote research based educational strategies for students who struggle in Math and works diligently to reverse the negative spiral of low self esteem.

Dr. She lives in Katy, TX and works in the greater Houston area. The Development of Numerical Competence: Animal and Human Models by Sarah T. Boysen. The area of animal counting has historically been the subject of a long and colorful debate, but only more recently have systematic, more rigorous experimental efforts to evaluate numerical abilities in animals been undertaken. This volume contains chapters from investigators in a range of disciplines with interests in comparative cognition. The studies described characterize the emergence of number-related abilities in rats, pigeons, chimpanzees, and humans, bringing together -- for the first time in one volume -- the rich diversity of cognitive capabilities demonstrated throughout many species. The data and theoretical perspectives shared will likely serve to provoke much thought and discussion among comparative psychologists and fuel new research and interest in the field of animal cognition.

Google developers made a splash early on Monday at ISTE 2015 with two big announcements for Classroom, its popular assignments management tool for teachers. Photo: D. Frank Smith Google Classroom Product Manager Zach Yeskel unveiled two big announcements for the popular app Monday at ISTE 2015. During a Google developer breakfast Monday, Google Classroom's Product Manager Zach Yeskel took the stage, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with “Less Tech-ing, More Teaching. " That phrase embodies the design philosophy the company has taken for many of its education products, especially Google Classroom.

Yeskel unveiled two new ways for teachers to integrate content with Classroom: a share button that helps teachers share links and videos to entire classrooms, and a new application programming interface (API) that makes it far easier to integrate a Classroom roster with other student information systems (SIS). "Classroom is really designed to save teachers time," says Yeskel. Why Collaboration Is Useless for Problem Solving. Collaboration is basically the grownup word for "playing nice together. " That makes it easy to assume that more collaboration has got to be better than less. Unfortunately, collaboration doesn't always work. Sometimes, it actually shackles your ability to solve a problem.

A new study shows that when you really need to solve a tough problem, collaboration is not the answer. You--and your employees--will have better luck closing the door and duking it out on your own. The researchers, from Harvard Business School, Boston University's Questrom School of Business, and Northeastern University, assigned 70 teams of 16 students each to solve various problems. Teams that were the most interconnected did the best job of digging up information that could, theoretically, help them in finding a solution. The more-connected teams didn't dig up that much more information than the less-connected ones. Is Common Core Age-Inappropriate or is Piaget Misrepresented? - The Mathematics Teaching Community.
