What Has Math Got To Do With It? has given me a tool I need as a mother and an educator. In high school I struggled with math and gave up. This book helped me understand why that happened. I have a child who struggles with math now and the book will help me not repeat the past. I went online to author Jo Boaler's website and found so many useful tools to help students with math. I hope to share with my colleagues that "Math is not a performance subject. Math is a learning subject. " The brain grows by making mistakes. Kids are motivated by their own questions.

This book has been helpful working with my own 7th grade child to raise awareness and motivation by recognizing how math integrates into different applications -- gives practical ideas to frame the ways math ties into everyday life and strategies for working with students in the classroom/after school homework club settings to incorporate math concepts in a variety of different ways.

The question that math teachers hear almost everyday in their classrooms is, "When am I going to use this in the real world?" Well, this book has the answers! I highly recommend this book for current and future educators, and not just mathematics teachers. All to often educators are forced to teach students how to pass standardized tests, not learn and master the information. This books identifies the lack of educators ability to teach and helps equip educators with useful tools and skills!
