Neuroscientists have recently made a startling discovery as to why so many students these days are having trouble with math. Brain imaging has shown that starting at a young age, a simple problem in arithmetic can trigger a fight-or-flight reaction. When this occurs, the systems in the brain that support learning math are compromised, leading to more and more problems in higher grades. Self-Reg sets out to understand why this is happening; how we can prevent it from happening in the first place; and what can be done to help a student whose “math alarm” has already been “kindled.”
