Finger tracing can lift student performance in math

Science Daily – Staff Writer

“Students who trace certain maths problems with a finger are able to solve them more quickly and easily, University of Sydney research shows. Studies involving 275 Sydney school children aged between nine and 13 found that tracing over elements of maths problems enhanced how they understood and solved problems in geometry and algebra. Tests revealed students who used their finger to trace over practice examples while simultaneously reading geometry or arithmetic material were able to complete tasks more quickly and correctly than those who did not use the same technique.”(more)
