Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques
Engaging pupils and assisting them in making connections between various mathematical concepts are the most difficult aspects of teaching mathematics. You may do that by looking at the big topics in second grade through visualization, play, and research using the low-floor, high-ceiling projects in this book.
The same message kept coming up when authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams interacted with tens of thousands of teachers: they wanted to incorporate more brain research into their math lessons but lacked direction on the most effective teaching methods. As a result, the exercises in Mindset Mathematics were created by the writers using the principle of active student inquiry and the most recent findings in learning neuroscience. It has been demonstrated that open-ended, imaginative, and visually stimulating math exercises help students learn, but more crucially, they help them develop a new relationship with mathematics and a sense of self-worth. The exercises in Mindset Mathematics are based on the following findings from brain science:
- There is no such thing as a math person and anyone can learn mathematics to high levels.
- Mistakes, struggle, and challenge are opportunities for brain growth.
- Speed is unimportant, and even counterproductive, in mathematics.
- Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics.
With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.
