Dear Mathematical Mindsets Book Study Group,
THANK YOU!! :) for all of your contributions to the discussion of Mathematical Mindsets. Thank you for sharing big picture ideas, suggestions for the classroom, great questions, and your mathematical thinking. I'm so happy with the engagement of the group and the high quality of our discussion. Here are some ways to stay involved:
- Jo Boaler is teaching an online course about Mathematical Mindsets this summer; she is offering a free webinar on Thursday to share more details about the course: https://www.youcubed.org/mathematical-mindsets-course/
- Participate in the LINCS Math and Numeracy discussion! You can post about Math Mindsets or any other topic related to adult numeracy.
- This Mathematical Mindsets discussion will remain open. Almost everyone that I talked to about the book study said that they were not able to keep up as much as they would have liked. The discussion posts are not going anywhere, so get together with colleagues to read Mathematical Mindsets this summer or fall and use the discussion questions and what others have shared for additional resources and inspiration. (Feel free to continue to add to the online discussion as well.) The full set of study questions are listed in a pdf in the Documents tab.
Thanks again, everyone! Happy summer!
