Happy 12th Week of School!

Please read the district & campus news below. As always, let me know if you have any questions or would like to meet.

MATH

How to Learn Math (8 min) - This is a GREAT video from Stanford about learning math!

  • Everyone can learn math to high levels
  • Believe in yourself (growth mindset vs fixed mindset)
  • Struggle and mistakes are really important
  • Speed is not important
How could you use this video with your students or even with parents? (Disclaimer: the video says the word "stupid" at 5:04 and 5:28)

An Illustrated Mathematics Dictionary - This resource can be shared with parents and students.
