By definition, the term "specific learning disability" means a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, which may manifest itself in imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. In the case of a student with a learning disability, this may be due to a perceptual, processing or memory disorder.
Such term includes such conditions as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia. With English Language Learners (ELL), it is more a matter of learning a new word.
Base on result and analysis, the conclusion is that Scientific Approach can improve students' mathematical problem solving skills.
