Love and Punishment by Paul W. Dixon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The earlier chapters in the text bring together our basic understanding of how the child acquires their basic mental capacities from early experience. As education has become of greater and greater importance in our modern world, it is this understanding which is essential for progress into the world of higher education. This background is based on standard and well-accepted principles of psychology and linguistics. This text is, therefore, highly recommended to all parents who wish to increase the intellectual and school readiness development of their child. The children need also to have a means whereby they can overcome those difficulties which so often occur in mathematical instruction. It is therefore recommended that a series of exercises both mathematical and dance oriented be started in the child's early years. In this way, the alleviation of mathematical phobia and anxiety in the United States and in the rest of the world can be solved. Those approaching this problem from the mathematical point of view attempt to develop more elaborate mathematical descriptions, algorithms, and information theories to instruct the student in mathematical skills and understanding. Unfortunately, this does not attack the problem at the point of origin and what is needed is a means whereby the mental images of the child and adolescent can be developed early in the child's life to create an substratum of these basic mental images/schema which underlie mathematical ability. Thus we can say, that until schools employ the method of instruction as proposed herein and this method is widely disseminated throughout the world, mathematical phobias and anxiety will continue to trouble and deter studentsfrom normal progress as they go through elementary school, middle school, high school and into college. At each stage the main barrier to progress is the inability to do higher level mathematics. Algebra, trigonometry, analytical geometry, calculus and the higher forms of math remain a perpetual mystery and source of confusion to the pupils and students without the underlying preparation as shown in this text.
