The Dyscalculia Forum - News MSNBC's Redtape Chronicles wrote up an article on dyscalculic consumers, concluding what we already know - dyscalculics without the proper education have a hard time in adult life. "Dyscalculics often can't count change", said Professor Brian Butterworth, of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, and perhaps the world's leading dyscalculia expert. They don't understand interest calculation or exchange rates. By the time they become adults, they are so insecure about numbers that they frequently cede all money issues to others, a recipe for disaster. "Unfortunately, there have been no studies that I know of, looking into the vulnerability of dyscalculics as consumers," Butterworth said. "It would be a valuable addition to this area."
Newton’s Laws and Universal Design for Learning This website contains a universally designed high school physics lesson on Newton’s Laws of Motion, meaning that it includes multiple means of representation , expression , and engagement for accessing a the lesson in response to the different tasks of the brain, namely recognition , strategic , and affective tasks (Rose et al., 2002) . In particular, the lesson will be focused on meeting the needs of a dyscalculic learner in the class, while still meeting the needs of the other students taking part in the physics lesson. Designs specific to the learner with dyscalculia are developed in part based on previous research into the learning characteristics of students with this disability.

The Brain, Math, and Dyscalculia Parts of the Brain Important to an Understanding of Dyscalculia Intraparietal Sulcus: The right intraparietal sulcus, located in the parietal lobe, is a small fissure or valley in the brain. This furrow is said to help the mind visualize spatial images. In people with dyscalculia, this part of the brain is unusually short and shallow. In addition, a french team of researchers has measured abnormal pulses in this part of the brain in dyscalcuics (Pearson, 2003). The left intraparietal sulcus is part of the left parietal lobe.
