Math-PositiveMindsets_front_cover_3D.jpg

Every parent, caregiver, and teacher wants kids to succeed in math. But how can you go from math-panicked to math-positive?

Math doesn’t have to be scary or hard.

Changing how you think about math will change how well you do math. You may not have had the benefit of learning math using the hands-on, problem-rich methods found in today’s classrooms.

Give math a second chance! You may just find you like it this time around.

Praise for Math-Positive Mindsets

This book is an excellent resource to help parents, teachers and students reframe the way they think about math. By taking a positive approach to the subject, you can open your mind to learning new techniques for teaching and understanding math concepts.

~Leslie Shaw, Preschool Director, KS

This book will help you change your mindset from “I don’t know what’s going on” to “I can learn what’s going on and be the difference in my child’s education." Math is universal, so everybody can benefit from this amazing book!
--Jesus Sanchez 
6th Grade Bilingual Math Teacher, TX 

Your book gives me the courage that I am not alone and provides incredible tools as I work with my kids to avoid many of the mistakes and anxieties I developed learning math. For this, I can't thank you enough! Well done!

--Bryant P. Castleton, father and business leader, GA

This book is perfect for anyone who has experienced math anxiety! As a teacher of teachers, a parent, and a long-time math teacher, I strongly recommend this as an essential resource for anyone who works with children to create a math-positive mindset.  

--Juanita Copley
Author of The Young Child and Mathematics (National Association for the Education of Young Children, 2010)

This book is a must-read for those who impact young children’s lives mathematically.

ALL FOR MATH AND MATH FOR ALL
