Solve the Math Struggle | On Cloud Nine Students Consistently Show Significant Gains

Nov 3, 2017
 
 

“What’s 6×6 again? Is it … 35?” Conor thinks to himself while chewing on his pencil. He’s been practicing his multiplication facts daily, but he just can’t seem to remember them all. He tries counting on his fingers, but it’s too hard to keep track as the numbers get higher. Surrounded by other fourth graders taking this week’s test, he starts to make little dots next to the problem so he can count those, but he’s running out of time.

 

For Conor and other students who find math challenging, addition or multiplication facts don’t seem to “stick,” and word problems often seem like a mystery where you just guess at the answer and hope for the best.

 

The primary cause of math difficulty is a weakness in numeral imagery—the ability to visualize numbers—and concept imagery—the ability to create an imaged gestalt (whole) from language. Individuals who demonstrate weaknesses in these areas have a sensory-cognitive processing deficit that inhibits performance in math. They often attempt to memorize math facts instead of being able to think, reason, and problem solve with numbers. Students who have this weakness may have a diagnosis of dyscalculia.

 

The On Cloud Nine® Math Program stimulates the ability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Concept and numerical imagery are integrated with language and applied to math computation and problem solving. There is emphasis on both mathematical reasoning and mathematical computation.
