The myth of the “Maths Brain”….

Jo Boaler

Have a listen to this fantastic broadcast from Jo Boaler:

BBC – The Educators

This is so relevant to all the ideas behind the HNP approach, and inspires us all to make sure we are teaching THINKING skills rather than just procedures. Her message that we need to pass on positive messages about maths and numeracy is so important in ensuring our children achieve to their full potential – the idea that only some people are “good at maths” is a myth!

It would be great to hear your thoughts and comments on this broadcast!
