STANFORD ONLINE MATHEMATICS COURSE - FREE

This summer, Jo Boaler, a Mathematics Education Professor at Stanford University, has made available an online mathematics course designed for students. The course is FREE and for people at all levels. Many of our staff will be taking course. The course consists of a series of videos that you may view at your own pace at whatever time works best for you. Please consider registering and at least trying out a few of the videos. We believe this course will change you and your student’s relationship with math if you give it a chance. Here is the overview from the course website:

ABOUT THIS COURSE

How to Learn Math is a class for learners of all levels of mathematics. It combines really important information on the brain and learning with new evidence on the best ways to approach and learn math effectively. Many people have had negative experiences with math, and end up disliking math or failing. This class will give learners of math the information they need to become powerful math learners, it will correct any misconceptions they have about what math is, and it will teach them about their own potential to succeed and the strategies needed to approach math effectively. If you have had past negative experiences with math this will help change your relationship to one that is positive and powerful.

The course will feature Jo and a team of undergraduates, as well as videos of math in action - in dance, juggling, snowflakes, soccer and many other applications. It is designed with a pedagogy of active engagement. The course will run from roughly mid-June to the end of December, 2014.
