Good read before started with Mindset Math series ( ) Use as transition reading material. I like math though. Well, I like Math if it is properly discussed by the teacher as well as it was easy and very understandable. But sometimes, it was really hard to understand and familiarize such formulas and operations. But math is here to develop more our creative and critical thinking skills. This book is really helpful to all teachers and students to understand math as well as make new innovative ways just to let them understand faster. If you are someone who is dealing with teaching or learning Math, this book is for you. Traditional ways of teaching mathematics is challenged at every level. Proven techniques mentioned throughout the book are a testament that Mathematics not only requires, but also improves imagination by leaps and bounds. I really liked the concept of 'If you want to understand it, you draw it' as one teacher taught her students. The book provides many illustrations of how this can help students imbibe the concepts of mathematics. There are numerous web links in the book that are well-worth following up after reading the book. As a parent, I'd like to know how best to teach a creative subject like Math to my kid. I have a question for the author though. In page 29, the author mentions "The high incidence of fixed mindset thinking among girls is one reason that girls opt out of STEM subjects". But it is not clear as to why girls have fixed mindset in the first place. Women opt out of STEM subjects and seem to join one of the many 'pink-collar' jobs - Nursing, Teaching, Counselors, HR Managers - does this mean these jobs don't need people with growth mindset? no reviews | add a review
Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success Mathematical Mindsets provides practical strategies and activities to help teachers and parents show all children, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, that they can enjoy and succeed in math. Jo Boaler--Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning--has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students. There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all. Mathematical Mindsets: 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 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.No library descriptions found. |
