Scientists are developing a new type of thinking cap
While working with an online math tutoring program, students will wear special caps so their brain activity can be monitored.
The researchers will track brain activity associated with a student’s pause to evaluate whether it is the result of frustration or a wandering mind.
With a better understanding of how math is learned, student lessons can be improved to fit the needs of individual learners.
