The Math Trailblazers author team is a big fan of Jo Boaler’s work at Stanford University and on youcubed. This video of Boaler and her students on “How to Learn Math” is a nice resource to share with students to start a conversation about the learning culture of your class.  It explores the idea that everyone can learn math, the power of developing a growth mindset and supporting productive struggle, and the value of developing number sense and thinking deeply as opposed to emphasizing speedy recall of math facts.

Discover how Math Trailblazers supports and embodies the ideas in Boaler’s video by exploring our section on classroom culture and our approach to Math Facts and Whole Number Computation as well as how Math Trailblazers helps students persevere by fostering flexible thinking and supporting the development of deep conceptual understanding of mathematics.
