Well-developed visual skills are a prerequisite for success in math. Here are some tips for fostering your child’s visual skills.
According to Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner, children with logical-mathematical intelligence have well-developed visual skills. They complete arithmetic problems quickly in their head, easily develop computer skills and win at games that require a visual strategy like checkers and chess.
Gardner and other researchers strongly suggest that well-developed visual skills are a prerequisite for success in math. Even though your child may not be a "natural" when it comes to using inner vision, you can help her develop the ability using these suggestions.
