Kids Math TV games

Math GAMES are an excellent way to help kids retain what they've learned.

Try some games from KidsMathTV
for a little fun review this summer.

They have a bunch of games from kindergarten through 7th grade!

Personally, I feel my oldest can use review of pre-algebra concepts, such as equations and percentages, which are included on their page for 7th grade games.

Do you have a "math gene"?

The clip lets you see just a glimpse of how damaging that myth can be...

...but there is great hope! As soon as students, teachers, and parents start believing that EVERYONE can learn grade-school math, students start gaining— and even get excited about math!

The clip is from an upcoming new movie American Math Crisis by Vicki Abeles, who has also made the feature documentary Race to Nowhere.

How to Learn Math - student course

Last year, I took a free online course by professor Jo Boaler titled How to Learn Math.

I loved the course. I learned about the value of mistakes, brain growth, number talks and number sense, and other VERY refreshing and thought-provoking topics.

Now she is offering a student version of the course, and once again it is free.

The different concepts covered are:
Knocking Down the Myths About MathMath and MindsetMistakes and SpeedNumber Flexibility, Mathematical Reasoning, and ConnectionsNumber Patterns and RepresentationsMath in Life, Nature and Work
