Hear Jo Live on Public Radio, January 25 at 10 am PST
I thought you might like to know – especially if you are at home because of blizzards – that on Monday morning from 10-11 am (Pacific) I am on the radio program “Forum.” The show is broadcast by KQED, which is the most-listened-to public radio station in the nation. KQED is based in San Francisco, but anyone can tune in to the program online using this link, and submit questions for the Q & A.
I will be discussing my new book, “Mathematical Mindsets”. We will discuss the teaching techniques that support inquiry-based math and help students develop the mindsets that will help them in school and in life. I hope you can join me!

You have opened my eyes to the research behind things such as the negative effects of over-testing and “drill and kill” methods that I sensed intuitively were detrimental…
…I was searching for a process of learning math that would change the attitude of students from dislike to enjoy… this was the change I needed…
