Free Stanford Education Course: How to Learn Math

The class just began and I am really enjoying it. The class is for parents, teachers and of course, homeschoolers. It is designed to make you a better teacher in math by changing the student's perspective on math. She will be designing a similar course for students after the summer.

  • This course is free. 
  • It is from Stanford Math professor, Jo Boaler. 
  • It runs from July 14, 2013 through September 27, 2013. 
  • If you complete at least 85% of the sessions and activities, you will receive a Statement of Accomplishment. 
    • If you don't have the time or energy to do the activities, you can still just watch the videos and contemplate the questions she asks without responding. 

Concepts Covered
  • Knocking Down the Myths About Math
  • Math and Mindset
  • Mistakes, Challenges, and Persistence
  • Teaching Math for a Growth Mindset
  • Conceptual Learning Part I: Number Sense
  • Conceptual Learning Part II: Connections, Representations, Questions
  • Appreciating Algebra
  • Going From This Course to the New Mathematical Future

I have been homeschooling since 2009, but have been reading about it since 2003. Homeschooling is rapidly growing. Whether you are a veteran or new to homeschooling, I hope to filter some of the vast amounts of information for you
