Join Us for a Twitter Chat on Mathematics
#MathMindsetChat April 20 @ 8 PM EST
Join us April 20, 2018 at 8 PM EST for a Twitter chat all about mindsets in math education. We’ll be exploring how you can promote enduring math positivity and a true passion for mathematics in your students, applicable to grades K-12. We’ll use this time to help math teachers connect, share strategies, and brainstorm ways to promote a positive, growth mindset in math class.
Serving as our featured panelists for this chat will be the following educators:
