I was referred to this article today. It challenges my training as a teacher and the views of society and hence students in our classes.
It also means we have more to consider than structuring the content systematically and completely.
This year, one class particularly bothers me with their conclusions as to their mathematical ability. In an attempt to change that I have been periodically taking them through this student course from Stanford University which addresses many of the student blocks to learning Maths. The course is still open for enrolments and is free to do.
