Designed by professor Jo Boaler from Stanford University, California, US and the youcubed team, this resource provides weekly maths activities accompanied by inspirational videos on mindset and mathematics. Although this resource is aimed at US grades 5-8 this resource could be also useful for numeracy tutors looking for ways to engage adult learners.
Teachers will receive a full guide including ideas for ways to organize students and create a positive math environment for the year ahead.
The Ideas & Tasks tab contains activities covering a variety of numeracy skills and levels. This web resource also provides access to professional development resources and a free How to Learn Math course (MOOC) for learners at all levels.
