Mathematical Mindsets by Jo Bolar
The difference between successful and unsuccessful students is less about the content they learn and more about their mindsets. Help your students develop not only a growth mindset, but a mathematical mindset by providing opportunities for thinking, problem solving, and perseverance. This class will focus on developing number sense, number flexibility, and number fluency as an alternative to rote memorization, algorithms, and rules to follow.
