Teaching Strategies that Change Student Attitudes and Get Results

Learning to Love Math
Judy Willis MD

Is there a way to get students to love mathematics? The author, a mathematics teacher and neurologist, presents current research on brain function to develop a practical classroom approach to change student attitudes.

Strategies to reverse mathematics negativity by connecting with students and their families; to reduce mistake anxiety through enforced wait times, estimation, and multiple approaches; and to change intelligence by understanding how the brain works are detailed. There are techniques for creating a positive, happy and focused classroom: errorless maths, bringing the real world to the mathematics classroom, building self reliance, and incorporating relaxation moments are just some of the aspects discussed.

Motivating students is a key focus, with chapters devoted to creating student goals and understanding and planning achievable challenge. A “Brain Owner’s Manual” is included as an appendix.

Relevant for the classroom practitioner, curriculum leaders will also find many ideas to stimulate discussion and guide teachers to improve methodologies.
