Are you looking for a great book? Join Kelly Wegener in reading Mathematical Mindsets by Jo Boaler. Using an online learning platform, participants will engage in discussion at their convenience.
Mathematical Mindsets turns research findings into practical strategies and advice. Jo Boaler translates Carol Dweck’s concept of ‘mindset’ into strategies that both teachers and parents can use. Apply the concepts, in the classroom or at home, and take students who struggle in math from a state of self-doubt to a state of strong self-confidence.
