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.
This work reports on case studies of two schools that have taught mathematics in different ways. Three hundred students were followed over three years, providing a range of data to show the ways their beliefs and understandings were shaped by different approaches to mathematics teaching.

This book explores theoretical perspectives, describes successful classroom practices, and offers insights into how we might develop an effective sociocultural approach to equity in math education.
