I have always had MAJOR problems with math...and still do. I have managed to cope with this problem but am just curious...
1. I seem to turn numbers around.
2. I can't remember telephone numbers.
3. I have never been able to learn multiplication tables.
4. If I have the formula in front of me, I can work things out but don't ask me to work it out in my head or from memory.
Is this somehow related to dyslexia, even though my spelling, reading and writing skills is fine?
Also, another odd thing is that I am able to count, read and write in Binary without a problem or the need of a calculator...granted there is only two numericals in Binary...
Is my problem with maths/numbers possibly to do with how I learnt them rather than a brain issue?
Not really an issue...but like I said, just curious...
I have problems with Math and just can't seem to get the hang of it, but I am really good in literary fields. I think that most people just have right or left brain dominance.
I also have the problem of leaving out letters or numbers, sometimes I switch numbers around when I'm taking down a phone number or money receipt, but I think it's just because we are tired and rushed and not paying close attention as much as we should.
My wife is number dyslexic and our youngest son, at 19, has just been diagnosed as severely word dyslexic with very poor short term memory. I have just noticed that a problem I have had for many years, not seeing things that are there, is getting worse. For example, I look for a small object on a table, it isn't there, but a few minutes later, it is. Any idea if my wife's problem and mine are combinging to make my son the way he is?
