There is an interesting discussion going on in the NCUnschoolers Yahoo Group about http://www.livingmath.net
Here's what was said:
But a right-brained learner is better at math concepts, especially
when younger. They tend to gain those math facts later, like around 11-12
years old. In the meantime, they tend to be random learners, and even
prefer "harder stuff" (like algebra and geometry) when younger in order to
have a context in learning the "easy stuff". In other words, what we are
conditioned to believe is the "hard stuff" is easy for them and what we
believe to be the "easy stuff" is hard for them.
For those interested, www.livingmath.net is a great site to find interesting living book resources to engage the creative mind in expanding their math concepts and keep their
love of math alive.
I will also be talking about the math side of learning for the creative
learner at the Love to Learn conference.
