Does Math Frighten You?

Posted: August 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

Here’s an interesting article I read from the Wall Street Journal about parents helping students with Math when they may not feel 100% confident themselves.  I found it interesting how from an early age parents begin to shape a child’s perception of Math…


This article also makes me think of the book “Mindset:  The New Psychology of Success” by Carol Dweck.  If you haven’t read it–it may be worth reading as it challenges us to think of how we shape our children’s (or student’s) perceptions when challenges are faced.
