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. Jo Boaler—Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning—has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students. There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all. Mathematical Mindsets: Explains how the brain processes mathematics learning Reveals how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences Provides examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning Explains ways to give students a positive math mindset Gives examples of how assessment and grading policies need to change to support real understanding Scores of students hate and fear math, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals—until now. Mathematical Mindsets provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for any student at any age.

Teaching mathematics is one of the most difficult and important jobs that anyone can do. Mathematics is a critical part of education and an essential building block for problem solving skills that are needed in the real world. However, many students struggle to learn and understand mathematical concepts and educators need to do everything possible to help our students learn. This book focuses on four areas necessary to be an impactful teacher of mathematics: Planning, Pedagogy, Assessment, and Relationships. For each of the ideas presented in the book, a brief introduction will be shared and then two different perspectives will be detailed with examples. The first is Not like This which is often the traditional way of teaching mathematics or the less effective approach. The second perspective is Teach Like This which is my recommended approach based upon research and my own experience as a teacher, math coordinator, and graduate instructor of math education.

‘Kendimizle aramızdaki fark, bir başkasıyla aramızdaki fark kadar büyüktür.’ Montaigne Siz daha tehlikeyi algılamadan, ayağınızı fren pedalının üstüne götüren kim? Dinlemediğinizi sandığınız bir konuşma sırasında adınız geçtiğinde duymanızın sebebi ne? Neden sır saklamakta böylesine başarısız, nedenini bilmeden birini çekici bulmakta bu kadar başarılıyız? Eğer bilinçli zihin, yani sabah uyandığınızda sizinle birlikte uyanan ben, buzdağının yalnızca görünen kısmıysa, zihninizin geri kalanı tüm bir ömür neyle iştigal etmekte? Ünlü nörobilimci David Eagleman, 20 dilde yayımlanan –ve neredeyse şimdiden klasikleşen– kitabı Incognito ile beynimizin derinlerine dalarak, yaptığımız, düşündüğümüz ya da hissettiklerimizin çok büyük bir kısmının bizden başka bir biz tarafından yönetildiğini ürkütücü bir berraklıkla ortaya koyuyor. Sadakat geninden sizi olmadığınız birine dönüştüren beyin zedelenmelerine; optik yanılsamalardan striptizcilerin neden ayın belirli zamanlarında daha çok para kazandığına; Truva fatihi Odysseus'tan renkleri işitip biçimleri tadabilen sinestezik insanlara kadar geniş bir yelpazeden vakaları ve araştırmaları bir araya getiren Incognito, beynimizin işleyişi ve çelişkileri hakkında olağanüstü bir keşif yolculuğu sunuyor.

BU, BEYNİNİN YAŞADIKLARINLA BİRLİKTE NASIL ŞEKİLLENDİĞİNİN VE YAŞAMININ BEYNİN TARAFINDAN NASIL ŞEKİLLENDİRİLDİĞİNİN HİKAYESİ. Büyük ilgi gören kitabı Incognito ile nörobilimi geniş kitlelerle buluşturan David Eagleman, bizi içimizdeki kozmosa doğru hızlı ve nefes kesici bir yolculuğa çıkarıyor: Gerçek nedir? “Sen” kimsin? Nasıl karar veriyorsun? Beynin neden başkalarına ihtiyaç duyuyor? Teknoloji “insan olmak”ın anlamını değiştirebilir mi? Durak durak ilerleyen bu büyüleyici yolculuk ekstrem sporlar dünyasından ceza hukukuna, yüz ifademizden beyin ameliyatlarına, içgüdülerden ölümsüzlük arayışına kadar uzanıyor. Yolda, milyarlarca beyin hücresi ve birbirleriyle kurdukları trilyonlarca bağlantıdan oluşan sonsuz yoğunluktaki ağın içinde, görmeyi belki de hiç beklemediğin bir şey beliriyor: sen.
