TRANSFORMING THE MATHEMATICS TEACHING MINDSET

 

ABOUT US

Content is the Vehicle for Teaching Thinking

We live in a content-rich society with answers to all our questions at our fingertips. And our students know that and live that! So what then is the goal of a traditional curriculum in a 21st-century environment?


We at Teaching Mindset give educators the opportunity and the permission to see the mathematics we all teach and know so well in stunning new light and use the traditional as the portal for fostering student self-agency, confidence in problem-solving, and deep joyous learning.

It is incumbent upon the 21st-century adult community to teach the next generation of citizens the tools and the habit to assess what they know, what they think they know, and how they think they know it. Curriculum mathematics provides a perfect vehicle for this--even within a traditional assessment culture.

We show how.

What’s Being Said

 

James Tanton takes you on a pursuit of joyful mathematics. He sheds new light on traditional topics and inspires people to tinker with the concepts behind the algorithm. James' presentations are engaging, fun and full of ‘aha’ moments. A great popularizer of mathematics!

"I attended a workshop on Concept-Based Mathematics in Luxembourg facilitated by Jennifer Chang Wathall. Jennifer does such a great job of addressing and allowing time for everyone's thoughts and questions, while also keeping us on track to dig into the good stuff. It was definitely a productive, worthwhile, wonderful 2 days! Thanks again for a great weekend, Jennifer! I'm looking forward to digging into all of the resources, synthesizing my notes from the weekend and sharing with my curriculum heads and math colleagues."
