Now you might have come across people who prefer to write in block letters, instead of regular handwriting, all the time. While I want to give them the benefit of doubt - maybe they are simply writing down something meant for someone else - there are instances where most people take the help of printing to conceal their true personality. Now again, concealing their true personality might still be quite harmless, but ALL the time? I can understand you have to write in block letters while filling out official forms, but what is the point of using such letters all the time? It is just weird behavior, and what is worse - it can indicate a not-so-great personality trait.
Mathematics, or more colloquially, "math", is one of the most important subjects that students learn in school. Not only do good mathematical skills form a necessary for understanding of other subjects, especially the sciences, but also, math is an important life skill. Learning math usually of course begins at young age, sometimes even at home, with learning numbers and counting. At kindergarten and then school, students then progress through arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), and eventually to more advanced topics such as algebra, geometry, graphs and charts, and statistics. In all these areas, but especially during the learning of arithmetic, practice and rehearsal is one of the most ways for students to improve their mastery of the topic.
Another book is, The Brain That Changes Itself,by neuroscientist Norman Doidge. His book discusses the subject of neuroplasticity, how the brain changes and develops neuropathways in relation to habit changes and repeated actions. His research describes how handwriting and keyboarding require different actions and affect the brain in different ways. Dr. Dodge has said, "When a child types or prints, he produces a letter the same way each time. In cursive, however, each letter connects slightly differently to the next, which is more demanding on the part of the brain that converts symbol sequences into motor movements in the hand. Each of these actions creates different neuropathways in the brain.
