ASPD and maths

Postby kaloya123 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 10:38 am

Hello, I'm back. I just read some articles on the web suggesting that there is a link between prefrontal cortex activity in the brain and the solving of mathematical problems, so I am asking whether you are good at maths or not since ASPD is linked with low prefrontal cortex activity. But a person uses many different regions of the brains to make calculations, not only the prefrontal cortex, which means that you may also be good at maths.
So:
1. Are you good at maths or not?
2. Was it easy for you to remember mathematical formulas at school? :D :D :D

math was one of the reasons i dropped school
many years later i went to study electronics and the math was much "easier", i think it was the logic behind it that favored learning
the hands on experience of measuring/simulating the circuits may have helped too

Not a strong subject to me, math couldn’t possibly get more boring. Only time I like math is when there are dollar signs attached to it.

I love mathematics.

I think the reason that people tend to dislike it is because they were never taught the foundation of mathematics properly and therefore struggle to add concepts to an already shakey foundation.

Mathematics is the language of our universe. Formulas are easy to remember if you have an interest as to why and how they were created and their potential. If you have no understanding of the purpose of formulas it will be like trying to learn a Greek phrase for absolutely no reason.

What defines being good at maths? I think there is the understanding of mathematical concepts and being able to apply them proficiently and then there is looking beyond our current concepts and branching out new paths. *Isaac Newton*. The former everyone is capable of.

My maths skills are appalling.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

I used to skip math class as often as I could and would get into trouble for it. It was worth it. I really didn't like math.

Doesn't prefrontal cortex also correlate with intellect and logic?

If there is low activity like they say, why do most people on here seem intelligent and well spoken?

it isnt low activity per se but a structural dysfunction that leads to low activity IIRC

i think the methodology, chair rows, teacher, blackboard, chalk, doesn't provoke enough interest when you're an antisocial kid

I’ve always been fairly decent at maths. English and science were my stronger subjects as a kid when maths was mechanical but once we got into higher abstraction in maths it became far and away my best subject in school. Might be because I liked that I could learn a technique and be done or solve a problem set and be finished. I was allowed to shirk other duties and was forgiven behaviours for competing in maths chess and football too so it worked in my favour to excel in those areas. The better I got the more personalised attention I got from people on those subjects at a level that was challenging for me. I think if I’d been given the same treatment in creative writing I’d have excelled there instead
