With the free Math@Work web series, you’ll motivate students by sharing how their career aspirations can be realized through an understanding of math. Industry leaders work with real students to show the importance of learning math. Engage your classroom as you watch students discover the possibilities math presents.
In partnership with Mindset Works® and Math Solutions®, we have to ensure that every student has a growth mindset that motivates them to persevere and become effective problem solvers and 21st-century learners. Do you believe that math comes naturally to certain people or that hard work leads to success?
Having a growth mindset means understanding that your brain acts like a muscle—and that with effort everyone can be successful. But, fostering a growth mindset takes more than neuroscience. Our Professional Learning courses offer practices like smart praise to help to spearhead a cultural shift in and out of the classroom.
PreK math programs help first-time students build key foundational skills such as number recognition, counting, and analyzing patterns.
Elementary math instruction builds numerical reasoning, operational skills, and problem solving necessary for success that builds from basic functions toward beginning algebra.
In secondary math instruction, the focus shifts to proportional relationships, algebra, and geometry.
Intervention programs help target the needs of struggling students, focusing on critical skills to prepare them for success with algebra and higher math.
