Abstract

Mathematics is the universal language, and also known as the Queen of science. At the basic level, it deals with the concept of numbers, sequence, functions, geometric shapes, place values and comparing quantities. These basic concepts are crucial for our daily living. This concept has to be built at the primary level of schooling. But, unfortunately, children with Developmental Dyscalculia who constitute around 3-6% face difficulty in the acquisition of basic primary level arithmetic skills. These children have difficulty learning and recalling basic number facts, poor understanding of the signs, trouble with understanding place value, sequencing, comprehending math language and phrases. The purpose of this present study was to analyze the efficacy of virtual manipulatives in enhancing basic arithmetic among primary school students with Dyscalculia. In the present study, the researcher explores the efficacy of virtual manipulative in enhancing Basic Arithmetic of children with developmental Dyscalculia. The current investigation was carried out with 32 students with symptoms of Dyscalculia in a rural district of Tamilnadu. The purposive sampling design was adopted. Virtual manipulatives involving various learning modalities was designed based on the diagnostic test. The intervention was given for two months. The findings of the study showed that virtual manipulatives enhance the basic arithmetic skill of children with Dyscalculia and also enhance their motivation to learn Mathematics.
