Jo Boaler, Mathematical Mindsets a FAN Event


Drawing on her extensive research with thousands of students, author Jo Boaler reveals how teachers, parents, and other caregivers can transform children's ideas and experiences of math through a positive growth mindset method. Filled with illustrative examples, Mathematical Mindsets is an important guide to the information, techniques, and activities that can be put in place to make math more enjoyable and achievable for all students. Mathematical Mindsets shows how the entire approach to math teaching and learning--from paying attention to the math questions and reviewing the tasks students work on to the methods teachers and parents use to encourage or grade students--needs to be changed to help students realize the joys of learning and understanding math.
