A Compilation on Coping with Dyscalculia

Seçil SAYGILI [1]


Bu araştırmanın amacı, diskalkuli diğer bir ifade ile matematik öğrenme güçlüğünün  ne olduğu ve nasıl farkedileceği ile diskalkulik bir öğrenciye nasıl yardım edileceğine dair önerilerde bulunmaktır. Bu amaç doğrultusunda öncelilkle diskalkuli nedir sorusuna cevap aranmış ve ardından diskalkulik öğrencilerin karakteristik özellikleri betimlenmiştir. Araştırmanın temel amacına uygun olarak sonraki bölümlerde öğretmenlere öneriler yer almaktadır. Türkiye’de hangi sınav olursa olsun matematik başarısının düşük olduğu göz önünde bulundurulduğunda, diskalkuli ülkemizde pek de bilinmeyen ancak oldukça önemli olan öğrenme güçlüklerinden biridir. Öğretmenlerin bu güçlükle nasıl başa çıkabileceğini bilmesi önemlidir. Alanyazın taramasına dayalı bu analitik çalışma diskalkuliyi ele almak amacıyla yapılmıştır. Çalışmanın ileride yapılacak olan araştırmalar için  öncül niteliğinde olması bir diğer amaçtır. Makale, diskalkulik bir öğrenciye yardımcı olabilecek internettte bulunan etkinlik, kitap, materyaller ve oyunların kısa bir  derlemesi ile sonuçlandırılmaktadır.

The purpose of this research is to suggest how to be a dyscalculic student and how to learn the difficulty of learning mathematics by means of dyscalculia. For this purpose, the answer was searched firstly for the question of dyscalculia and then the characteristic features of dyscalculic students were described. In accordance with the main purpose of the study, recommendations are given to the teachers in the following sections. Given the low mathematical success of any exam in Turkey, the dyscalculia is a learning difficulty that is very unknown to the country but is very important. It is important that teachers know how to deal with this difficulty. This analytical study based on the rewiev of the literature has made to address dyscalculia. Another goal is to ensure that the study is the premise for future research. The article concludes with a short review of the activities, books, materials and games available on the internet, which can help a dyscalculic student.
