Course Description

There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This course reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all:

  • Explains how the brain processes mathematics learning
  • Reveals how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences
  • Provides examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning
  • Explains ways to give students a positive math mindset
  • Gives examples of how assessment and grading policies need to change to support real understanding
  • Provides mathematics-specific strategies for clear learning goals and assessment
  • Describes how to conduct direct instruction, practice, application
  • How to engage students, build relationships, and develop expertise in mathematics
  • Scores of students hate and fear math, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals—until now. Mathematical Mindsets provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for any student at any age

Appropriate for K-12 teachers!
