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.
Who is a math person? You are and you are and so are you!

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!

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.
