Math disabilities and instruction
Students whose learning disabilities center around arithmetic functioning are called dyscalculic. This problem involves an inability to perform basic math functions (i.e., addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) or to apply those operations to daily situations. Sometimes the problem is in understanding the abstract concepts of mathematical usage.
