Developing Our MathMINDs is a series of conversations and resources about math that is intended to be a journey of growth with families over several weeks. Each week, MIND's Lead Mathematician and Product Director Brandon Smith and Content Development Manager Nina Wu will be talking about the adjustments families are making to learning at home, and the opportunities this situation provides for changing our relationship with math.
Some of the content and resources provided will be connected to our ST Math program, which is free to access through the end of June 2020. We'll also be providing additional resources and math experiences that are program agnostic, and are designed to support learning at home. Each week, both the video conversations and resource links will be posted here on the MIND Blog, as well as on our YouTube page.
In this first week, Brandon and Nina cover a variety of topics, all related to making the adjustment to learning at home, and embracing the opportunities that this new situation presents.
Part One: It's Not What You Know, It's How You Approach Learning
Part Two: Connected Learning, Self-Care and Motivation
Part Three: Embracing the Learning Journey Together at Home
We Want to Hear From You!
We look forward to embarking on this mathematical journey together with families, and we want to hear about your challenges, successes, questions, and experiences along the way!
This week, we want to know: What is your family struggling with? What are you doing to help get through this time? What's working / not working? What are some unexpected challenges you didn't anticipate?
To reply, you can either comment on the blog below, head over to our Facebook group, or comment on YouTube. And for more information and resources that expand on this week's discussions, check out the links below!
