New math software targets 'perceptual learning'

New math software targets perceptual learning Ed-tech startups focus is on teaching students how to recognize patterns, so they can move on to mastery more quickly Focus on pattern recognition in math shifts emphasis from whats the answer? As schools struggle to balance conceptual learning and recall of simple facts, a new series of online math education products proposes a different focus: pattern recognition. Insight Learning Technology, a startup company formed by a pair of academics, has created online math education modules that tap into not only adaptive learning, which uses computer interactivity to individualize students lessons, but also the lesser-known field of perceptual learning, which focuses on patterns and relationships. By focusing on perceptual learning, the software aims to teach students how to learn mathin other words, what pieces of information are most important when tackling a problem.
