In math models can be used to explain the equation and the steps to get the answer. For lectures teachers can provide background information prior to the presentation. This will help some students work backwards to be able to see the conclusion. Left-brain dominant students practicing writing, will experience an increase in their writing ability.

The results from the study are too close for the right and left hemisphere of the brain, to determine that antisocialism is from brain dominance (para. 12).
