Study Guide for Chapter 3

Resources related to the classroom examples:

James Tanton‘s  5-part video series about thinking like a mathematician.

A highly readable summary of Dweck‘s research from New York magazine. It’s a great piece to share with families.

Shawn Towle‘s downloadable collection of postable quotes.

Reacting to the Unexpected

A lovely, short video about Melanie Matchett Wood, so you can put a face to the name and hear her reflect on collaboration and creativity and connection in math.

Making It Safe

I hope you’ll read one of the pieces in my personal canon: Herbert Kohl’s original essay, I won’t learn from you. It’s essential.
