..."The rope grid is the abstract Cartesian coordinate system made physical, and it's only one of many nontraditional tools [Chris Woodin] has developed for teaching math concepts to students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLDs), the population Landmark has specialized in teaching since it was founded in 1971.... Woodin calls this method "whole-to-part" learning because the emphasis is on understanding the relationship between the question and the answer rather than on being right or wrong — a notion that flips traditional classroom dynamics on their heads." -Excerpt from Decoding Drakes Dream Harvard Ed.
