The Mathematical Mindsets course helps educators inspire and boost math achievement. You’ll learn the latest neuroscientific research on the best methods by which students learn math, as well as the specific methods and approaches you can use to successfully help your students develop a growth mindset.
In this class, Dr. Jo Boaler will provide visual examples of how she taught mathematics to 6th and 7th grade students using these effective techniques. The teaching intervention, which was 18 lessons long, raised the students' test scores by an average of 50%.
Participants will also hear from thought leaders such as Carol Dweck and Steve Strogatz.
- Methods to start math class off right
- Messages and praise we give students
- Teaching visual mathematics
- Approaches to designing and choosing good tasks
