Math can be problematic and fascinating for students as it challenges their brains to think deeply. However, for some students, math can be challenging and may feel like a daunting task.
In this episode, Adrianne Meldrum, the Founder and CEO of Made for Math, shares the story behind the business she built named “Made for Math.” She explains that her journey as a child who struggled with math is one of her inspirations behind the business. She also talks about math anxiety among students, similar to what she experienced, and how she overcame her math fears through perseverance. Adrianne discusses that a child with dyscalculia is not a low-intelligence child. Instead, they need help with mathematical processing. She emphasizes that these individuals are typically knowledgeable, much like in the case of dyslexia, where individuals struggle with mapping sounds onto the symbolic representation.
