Unleashing Students’ Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages, and Innovative Teaching
Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success. In this lecture, Dr. Boaler will reveal how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences, provide examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning, and explain ways to give students a positive math mindset. She will provide research-based practical strategies 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, Ph.D., is a Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University and internationally recognized expert on teaching mathematics. She is the author of numerous research articles and nine books, including Mathematical Mindsets, What’s Math Got To Do With It? How Parents and Teachers Can Help Children Learn to Love Their Least Favorite Subject, and The Elephant in the Classroom. Dr. Boaler co-founded youcubed.org to give teachers and parents the resources and ideas they need to inspire and excite students about mathematics.
