Maths is a left brain function. For a child to be able to connect well in Maths, his or her brain must establish a neural path for figures. This is a major prerequisite for understanding Maths.
Has Your Child Established a Neural Path for figures in his or her brain?
The first step in helping our children to develop intelligence in Maths is to help them establish neural path for figures. Don’t panic, I am going to show you how to do that here and now.
When a child has established a neural path in his or her brains for figures, he will be able to think with figures, analyze figures, understand relationship between figures, study patterns of figures etc.
The Process of Intelligence
Let me show you the process of intelligence. For understanding to take place, a number of neurons (brain cells) in our brain have to connect and relate with one another in a coordinated form.
When this process is repeated severally in the brain, the brain gets the signal to establish a path for the process to happen with ease subsequently.
The speed at which your child’s brain process figures determines his or her intelligence in Maths. When a child has established a neural path for figures in his or her brain, he will be able to process Maths concepts in his brain with a high speed.
When a child has not established a neural path for figures in his brain, his neuron connectivity will be slow hence; he or she will find it difficult to understand concepts that have to do with figures. The good news is that every child can be taught how to establish neural paths for figures.
Repetition is the key that opens Neural Paths
Repetition is the key that opens neural paths. A process has to happen repeatedly for the brain to get the signal that it should open a neural path for it.
The brain opens a neural path when it has processed same or similar information repeatedly over a period of time.
When you keep expanding the level of information you supply to the brain in relation to a concept, the already made path gets wider and you get better at that thing.

Let me illustrate this entire concept with an example, the first time you made an attempt to ride a bicycle; it would appear like you will never be able to. You know why, because the concept is new to the brain. The neuro connectivity will be zero, low or slow.
With continuous practice, you will be sending a signal to your brain to open a paths for you to enable you understand how to ride a bicycle. When adequate signals have been sent to the brain with constant and repeated efforts, the brain gets the signal and opens a neural path.
Once the neural path is opened in the brain, it will align your body with the bicycle and you will be able to ride the bicycle.
The neural path established will allow you to ride anything similar to bicycle subsequently.
The good thing about establishing a neural path in your brain for something is that it helps you to make faster connectivity in anything similar.
If a person who has established a neural path in his brain on how to ride a bicycle is to learn how to ride a motor bike, he will understand quite fast because his brain has handled similar issue in the past.
YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO ESTABLISH A NEURAL PATH FOR FIGURES
Your child’s brain needs to establish a neural path for figures. Once your child’s brain has established a neural path for figures, his brain will be able to handle other subsequent figure concepts.
It takes sending constant and repeated figure signals to the brain for it to open a neural path for figures for your child.
Playing with figures, solving figure puzzles, learning Maths tricks, practicing number games and mental sums are great ways through which your child’s brain can be stimulated for figures.
That is my aim of writing the book, Mathematics Tricks. By playing with the 30 Maths Tricks in the book, your child will be sending more than enough signals to the brain to open a neural path for figures for him or her. CLICK HERE FOR THE BOOK
The good news is that we all can increase our rate of assimilation by simply increasing our rate of neuron connectivity.
The way to increase our neuro-connectivity and boost our understanding and mastery of anything is to do more of that thing.
If a child is not good at Maths, what should he do? He needs to relate more and more with figures by doing more Maths! The reason he is not good at Maths is because he hasn’t made enough neuro connections to allow him understand Maths.
By practicing more and more with figures, the brain gets the signal to create new connections and thought pattern otherwise known as neural path for figures.
