Publisher Description:

Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques

The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling tasks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the first-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation.

During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same messagethat they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that:

- There is no such thing as a math person - anyone can learn mathematics to high levels.

- Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth.

- Speed is unimportant in mathematics.

- Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics.

With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.

Category Description for Mindset Math:

Math can sometimes be difficult for kinesthetic or visual learners, because math textbooks present concepts in ways that can’t always be seen or visualized. This series offers activities and games that can be used alongside your curriculum to add that visual and kinesthetic component. Use things like number part cards, making and naming number patterns, paper manipulatives, puzzles, and other activities to help students visualize and master math concepts. These books align to standards and the activities are listed topically, so you can choose the appropriate activities for reinforcement. Strengthen and teach math concepts using games and activities with a visual flair in both the classroom and at home. The number of pages will vary by grade level. p/b. ~ Donna

Designed for classroom use where students can work in groups.
Good product--more for use in a classroom than for homeschooling an individual student. Doesn't really work for my purpose.
