This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person.

2.2.2 ‘Visual deficit’ hypotheses

Samuel Orton was one of the earliest and most influential researchers into dyslexia, although he used the term strephosymbolia – literally meaning ‘twisted symbols’. He noticed that children with specific reading difficulties often wrote letters back to front, confused letters such as ‘b’ and ‘d’, and would swap the position of letters within a word during spelling (e.g. ‘was’ might be written ‘saw’). From these and other observations, he suggested that their read

4.1 Whole numbers

If you add, subtract or multiply whole numbers, you always end up with a whole number. But division is different. One whole number may not ‘go into’ another exactly. There may be something left over.

For example if you have 6 biscuits to divide between 4 people, each person can have one biscuit each and 2 are left over. In division, the 2 left over are called the remainder. This is expressed as:

  • 6 ÷ 4 = 1, remainder 2
