The East Side Alliance, in partnership with the Santa Clara County Office of Education, presents:
Developing Mathematical Mindsets to Foster Learning and Understanding of Mathematics
Featuring: Dr. Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education
This symposium will focus on:
Strengthening and supporting motivational mathematics teaching and learning that results in students developing a productive disposition towards mathematics.
Engaging in strategies that value the power of mistakes and struggles in the classroom and mathematical tasks that develop students’ number sense.
We hope to answer these essential questions:
How can I transform the mathematical mindsets of my students to have a productive disposition?
How can I improve students’ flexibility in dealing with numbers and inspire them to learn math with understanding and sense making?
Open to all grade 3-12 Math Teachers; High School Math Department Chairs and Coordinators; Principals, or other interested parties.
