“I Hate Math”

Ever hear these words coming from your son or daughter as they struggle through their homework?  Many students develop a dislike for math through the years that has a negative, circular effect on their learning.  They don’t like math, and math doesn’t like them.  Although they may actually have good mathematical reasoning and computation skills, they may never experience success because of this barrier.

Stanford University has developed a course that helps change this – “How to Learn Math”.  It is an online course for k-12 teachers and parents to help them know how to improve student engagement with math.  The course began July 15, but will likely be offered again given the 20,000 people who have already enrolled.   During the 2012-2013 school year, Stanford will offer a student version of this course as well.
