Alternatively children may be presented with problems which have
not been written down in either numerical or word form. To some
extent these non-verbal problems, usually referred to under the global
term of mental arithmetic, can actually play to the strengths of
dyslexic children. The attendant difficulties related to getting
information from the written language are removed. Children are able
to concentrate on the task itself without having to worry about
extracting it from the page first. That said, the net effect of mental
arithmetic may also be negative. The problem may well contain a
series of tasks which children must retain in their working memory as
they seek to first understand them, then decide the calculation tasks
needed to solve it, then remember the figures to which the calculations
which must be applied and then work out the answer. If the activity is
timed (as it inevitably will be), children will then have to perform this
sequence of tasks, which are intrinsically difficult for them, under
extreme pressure. It is not surprising that, given this combined set of
circumstances, some children become overloaded, stressed and give
up. We have tried to illustrate this in the following example.

Example: 'Doing sums in my head or doing my head in'

(1)

'If a drinking trough contains 60 litres of water work out how much is
left after 6 cows have drunk 4 litres each, 10 litres have evaporated
and the farmer has then refilled it with 20 litres.'

(2)

· The trough starts with 60 litres.

· The cows drink 6 lots of 4 litres.

· 10 litres have evaporated.

· The farmer puts 20 litres more in.

Page 264

(3) The processes needed

· I must first work out how much water left the trough.

· I must then take this away from 60.

· I must then add the 20 litres the farmer put in.

(4) The skills needed

· Remembering that 6 cows drank 4 litres each.

· Knowing that to work out the total of water drunk you must
multiply 6 by 4.
