We are indeed in the great freedom, but a new study recently published revealed a very simple method of improving a child's ability in math lessons, and the truth is - it also applies to the period of freedom.



Improving physical education classes in school can be the key to students' academic success, especially in math.

Dance, martial arts (hi taekwondo and judo!) And high-intensity team sports have a huge impact on children's academic ability because they are “cognitively challenging”.

Researchers say that instead of increasing the number of weekly hours of sports classes, schools should consider improving the quality of classes.

This is the biggest lie known to you about exercise

To the full article

According to the study, not even a quarter (24 percent) of U.S. children between the ages of six and 17 participate in 60 minutes of exercise daily, the level of exercise recommended by the CDC. More intensive fitness classes can help children and teens meet the recommended level .



in a study published in the British journal of sports Medicine, researchers systematically reviewed data on the effects of specific interventions for physical education on brain power and academic ability in children and adolescents. the study was conducted in 11 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Italy, USA " In the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Power is also a brain?

The analysis shows that interventions that focused on raising the quality of exercise classes increased brain power, especially among elementary school students.

They also increased their academic ability, especially in math skills.

In contrast, increasing the number or length of exercise rates had a marginal and insignificant effect on academic performance.



Researchers say that physical activity improves cognitive abilities through direct and indirect neurobiological, psychological and behavioral mechanisms.

"Our meta-analysis findings suggest that improving the quality of sports lessons is a worthwhile investment in education that may lead to improved cognition and academic performance," the authors write.

This is of course not the first time that exercise has been linked to higher cognitive abilities, and in 2018 for example a study was published that found that fitness increases the amount of gray matter in the brain, and may have a beneficial effect on mental skills.

The study linked improved motor function to a larger volume of gray matter in two areas that are essential for language processing and reading.



Iran Esteban-Kornjo, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Granada and lead author of the study, wrote at the time that "fitness is something that can be changed in physical training. Overweight. "
