Parents and teachers: please register for this course and watch at least some of the videos:
How To Learn Math
It is an online course from Stanford, course number EDUC115.
The course leader is Jo Baoler, a name you should get to know in math education. It doesn't have grades or exams, so don't feel anxious about how you will perform in the "class."
Go ahead, register, watch some of the first lessons and think about what attitudes toward math and learning you communicate to the kids.
What if I already know and believe all this?
Fantastic! Share it with friends, parents, teachers and students you know.
