Welcome to our second Week of Inspirational Math(s)! My name is Jo Boaler, cofounder of youcubed and professor of mathematics education at Stanford. I am also the author of Mathematical Mindsets. Last year we launched our first WiM, which was downloaded 1/3 of a million times and used in every state across the US, as well as many other countries in the world. Teachers and students loved the activities and mindset videos. Of the teachers and students surveyed last year, 98 percent of the teachers said their students were engaged when working on the lessons and 96% of the students surveyed said they now believe they should keep going even when work is hard and they make mistakes. And that is a wonderful thing!
