Mathematics and Learning

Project Overview

The goal of this project is to empower teachers to be change agents in mathematics classrooms by: teaching and modeling for students tools/strategies for learning mathematics and developing a growth mindset; using mathematics as a vessel through which a broader set of enduring understandings are taught to students; and, providing students with a sense of what mathematicians do and a view of mathematics as a living subject. Using a variety of strategies, Tang Fellow Nikki Cleare will explore opportunities to bring knowledge and research about the science of learning and learning mindsets to the teaching and study of mathematics.
