I think I have a touch of dyslexia (or the number version of this) and nearly all of my problems in math have occurred because I misread the problem completely. What can I do to ensure that I am indeed seeing what I think I'm seeing?
Mathematics is different from many other disciplines in that information is often presented in a compact form that is very dense. You can't just skim through it. Whether you do or don't have dyslexia, it's important to make sure that you understand what is being conveyed in the problem. You want to be sure to work the problem as it is stated.I think I have a touch of dyslexia (or the number version of this) and nearly all of my problems in math have occurred because I misread the problem completely.

Many people don't have a good grasph on left vs. right. I was in the US Army back in the 60s, and it was firmly impressed on me which way left is and which way right is.That could well be dyslexia. I used to have issues with left and right confusion. On my drivers test the instructor said take a right turn and I put the signal on for left and took a left. He told me what I did wrong but still passed me because I signalled correctly for the turn I took.
