You are watching a YouTube video on how to solve a single variable mathematical
equation. For example:
4x + 7 = 15 therefore 4x = 15 – 7 hence 4x = 8 with a final solution being x = 2.
Based on this activity and your understanding of the function of the various lobes of the
the brain as outlined in the text and/or other sources (i.e. internet), indicate /list
at least 3
the lobes that would be required to be working together as you review the video. In describing the task, make sure you show how each of the lobes is involved. Try to be
brief (no more than a paragraph per outline).
It is important to cite/reference any information obtained from the text,
articles, the internet, etc. Failure to do
so will result in a grade of zero and a report of a
breach of the
Academic Integrity policy.
(Identifying correctly the various lobes of the brain in performing the task is worth
1 mark each and 3 marks total for your outline of how each is specifically involved
1) Parietal lobe: Responsible for calculatign and processing numbers
2) Frontal lobe: This part takes care of recalling numerical knowlwdge and logical reasoning
3) Thalamus: Sorts data and sends it where it belongs
