The first axiom of neuroscience is: ‘use it or lose it’. The brain rises to the challenges that are set before it. Always! However, if the brain is not presented with challenges, it does not have an opportunity to rise to.
Learning math on an academic level requires ‘The Plan’. Math needs a specific plan of order including when certain topics/subjects are introduced, how long it continues, and how the topic/subject is delivered to the students. By the end of the first year of high school, very few students have that path well paved. Once students reach College or University level studies, regardless if they came from a private or public school, they face the same challenges.
When we consider how mathematical syntax is consistently avoided throughout Primary and Middle Schools, and in which order math ideas were presented throughout years, by the time students reach High School, the natural logic their brains are born with have not been allowed to ‘rise’ to the challenges set before it. Math has become so hard and frustrating, that very few students even try to understand it after their second year of High School.
