So lets talk about the left side, the left side of the brain is part that does all logical stuff like math and sciences. People with a left side of brain stronger than the right are usually very good at using rules and applying them to life. For example a left brain person will learn most of the equation of a math class with no problem and use them very well. So a left side brain person is usually good at finding answer to problems that happens many time.
The other side is the right, this side is good at making up things or being creative. The people with a right of brain stronger than the left are usually artist, programmers, and writers. Sometimes right side brain people don't follow rules that are already here. For example they will do a math problem and then make up their math equation or algebraic equation. A right side brain usually are good at finding answer to problems that never happens before. A good way to describe left side brain is a person who follows the rules and a good way to describe right side brain is a person who doesn't follow it rules, but create their own.

The classroom environment is so much different from the old environment; the class has more artwork on the walls, the lighting of class is different, and seat arrangement are unique. You have teachers who understand you and spend time with you as long as you want. The ways of learning style goes from games to creative artwork of what you learn.
There are many great exercises that support the brain, but are some things you do that destroy the brain, like watching television for a long time. If you sit there and watch television seven hours a day; you are destroying your brain. Television actually destroy your focusing and attention length. You will easy go zone out somewhere, when you are doing a test because you are still thinking about what happens on last night final episode of CSI or something.
