According to this article, researchers find that “dyscalculia” is a important reason can make people’s math skill weak. Some people are not be able to understand math as well as others because their genes have a little different with other people. They are vulnerability as consumers and people start to notice this problem. Butterworth’s research also prove this idea. The researchers can fin out if someone is a “dyscalculia” or not by giving some simple test. People konw that this kind of problem may not be able cure, but those guys who have triable with this still can get help from others.
After read through this article, I learned that math abilities can be decide natural when your parents given genes to you. I think this article also proved that math skill is an important basic ability. According to the author, this new theory will help people understand how does math ability runs in our mind. We shouldn’t laugh at the people who has triable with math, however we need to find a better to help them. Also, math is closely linked to economy, finance and marketing. I should learn more about the interdisciplinary things about mathematics. There should be many things that can be consider as my career. Maybe become a researcher is not a bad idea for me.
