## I think I have Maths Dyslexia. How should I tell my folks?

Frequent difficulties with arithmetic, confusing the signs: +, −, ÷ and ×.
Inability to comprehend financial planning or budgeting, sometimes even at a basic level; for example, estimating the cost of the items in a shopping basket or balancing a checkbook.
Difficulty with multiplication-tables, and subtraction-tables, addition tables, division tables, mental arithmetic, etc.
May do fairly well in subjects such as science and geometry, which require logic rather than formulae, until a higher level requiring calculations is obtained.
Difficulty with conceptualizing time and judging the passing of time. May be chronically late.
Particularly problems with differentiating between left and right.
Difficulty navigating or mentally „turning“ the map to face the current direction rather than the common North=Top usage.
Having particular difficulty mentally estimating the measurement of an object or distance (e.g., whether something is 10 or 20 feet (3 or 6 metres) away).
Often unable to grasp and remember mathematical concepts, rules, formulae, and sequences.
An inability to read a sequence of numbers, or transposing them when repeated, such as turning 56 into 65.
Difficulty keeping score during games.
Difficulty with games such as poker with more flexible rules for scoring.
Difficulty in activities requiring sequential processing, from the physical (such as dance steps) to the abstract (reading, writing and signaling things in the right order). May have trouble even with a calculator due to difficulties in the process of feeding in variables.
The condition may lead in extreme cases to a phobia or durable anxiety of mathematics and mathematic-numeric devices/coherences.
Low latent inhibition, i.e., over-sensitivity to noise, smell, light and the inability to tune out, filtering unwanted information or impressions. Might have a well-developed sense of imagination due to this (possibly as cognitive compensation to mathematical-numeric deficits).
Thats What I read off of wikipedia, And I think I may have it.
How can I bring it up to my folks? I do experience all these things every time I have to do basic maaths and well, any maths!
How can I tell them?
Dyscalcxia or something

Have you discussed this with your maths teacher or school counselor? Would either of them be willing to recommend an evaluation?
It seems to me that there’s more going on with your non-verbal abilities than just trouble in maths (dyscalculia; dyslexia is reading, with which you obviously have no problems), which suggests there’s a „loose wire“ in the right hemisphere of your brain.
I think it’s best to be straight on with your parents and tell them how much difficulty you are having; that it isn’t only maths, but with other aspects of non-verbal cognition. Nor is it due to laziness, because you’ve tried hard to master these topics for a very long time without success.
It is very clear to me that you are bright; your writing proves that.
Learning disabilities are diagnosed by the administration of standardized tests of oral and written language (verbal abilities) and non-verbal aspects of cognition, most of which are the problems you describe. Testing is usually done by a school psychologist. The resulting graph will show peaks in verbal abilities and troughs in non-verbal functioning, which is a typical representation for a learning-disabled child (vs. Intellectual disability, which has a flat profile).
Once an evaluation is complete and there’s a diagnosis and severity level, the school (with your parents‘ permission, of course) will develop treatment goals and place you in the appropriate program to address your educational needs. You CAN learn to compensate for the problems you are experiencing.
Hang in there, and please realize your problems are nothing to be ashamed of. In addition, you can’t get the help you need without putting the ball in motion.

## What is the best Poker Calculator to improve the game?

There are many tools / calculators available so look carefully before you part with any money. Really depends on what type of games you are playing… A couple of suggestions;

– PokerStove – its free and calculates the % chances of your hand winning against a range of possible opponents hands.
– Sit and Go Power Tools – this is a calculator that shows your equity at the bubble of a sit and go for pushing all-in or calling an all-in
– PokerTracker – a database which holds the history of all your hands so you can see which ones you are winning / losing the most money with.
– PAHUD – An add on for PokerTracker that displays live statistics on your opponents during play (very useful!).
– PokerOffice – Similar to PokerTracker and also contains a live statistics display.

Be careful about ads which tell you their tools can be used to cheat at online poker – there are a lot of scams out there!
