“Highly accessible and enjoyable for readers who love and loathe math.” —Booklist A critical read for teachers and parents who want to improve children’s mathematics learning, What’s Math Got to Do with It? is “an inspiring resource” (Publishers Weekly). Featuring all the important advice and suggestions in the original edition of What’s Math Got to Do with It?, this revised edition is now updated with new research on the brain and mathematics that is revolutionizing scientists’ understanding of learning and potential. As always Jo Boaler presents research findings through practical ideas that can be used in classrooms and homes. The new What’s Math Got to Do with It? prepares teachers and parents for the Common Core, shares Boaler’s work on ways to teach mathematics for a “growth mindset,” and includes a range of advice to inspire teachers and parents to give their students the best mathematical experience possible.

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.

This book includes straightforward and time-tested guidance for busy parents of school-age children (from grades 4 to 12, and beyond) on how to find great professionals who can inspire students to succeed, and how to help their children: - Improve results from tutoring - Get motivated & disciplined - Become more confident & gain hope - Set their sights higher - Perform better in school as a result Additionally, the book includes: - A system for supporting students (building and managing an academic team - even for very busy parents), including insights based on over a decade of experience in the education industry - Straightforward suggestions taking student psychology into account - And effective strategies for promoting success With this new arsenal of tools, parents will be empowered to help students get inspired to pursue their dreams with confidence and motivation. Expert opinion on "Busy Parents: Lead Your Children to Success" "Gabriel proposes a change in the educational paradigm by focusing on students' parents, suggesting a highly positive kind of involvement in the educational process, making them reflect on the nature of their beliefs, exposing and proposing positive changes to the cognitive biases, preconceptions, equivocal involvements, misinformation, and most importantly the projection of parental emotions onto their children. Ultimately, his work focuses on the often ignored - and fragile - link between the student, parent, and team of educators. Extremely useful and arising from a beautiful insight!" - Dr. Isaac Joukhadar
