A new resource & an invitation to join us at Stanford
I wanted to let you know about a new free resource we have released. It is a nicely illustrated short document that summarizes some of the main messages and ideas from my book: Mathematical Mindsets. It includes some recommendations for task design and some questions to promote deep thinking and conversations. I developed it with mathematics educators in the Tulare County Office of Education. You can download the card here, and find it on my twitter page (@joboaler).
Our two-day workshops: Teaching Mindset Mathematics, are now open for registration. The workshops will be held on the Stanford campus and will teach you how to teach “mindset mathematics.” Those who attend will receive a copy of the youcubed summer math camp curriculum. We will work together to watch video, work on math tasks, and consider the ways to create a mindset mathematics community. I will teach some of each camp, with my youcubed team. There are 6, 2-day sessions available to choose from, all of which will cover the same material. Registration is open to all until capacity is reached. For questions not answered on the website email Jessica at email@example.com.
This past Saturday our work was featured in a Wall Street Journal article, on the importance of fingers and other aspects of visual maths. This followed last week’s CNN article and Scientific American article. It is good to see the mainstream media focusing on mathematics education and our youcubed messages!
