Joy and enthusiasm are absolutely essential for real learning to happen. When students say or think “I hate math,” they’re experiencing math stress from boredom or frustration that is getting in the way of learning.

It’s time to play mind games.

Join Judy Willis, a neurologist, educator and author of Learning to Love Math: Teaching Strategies that Change Student Attitudes and Get Results, for a webinar that will explore the “I hate math” syndrome and provide strategies for dismantling this mental block.  Your students can’t reach their true potential in math until you show them how to develop a more positive attitude!

Webinar Topics:

  • The 2 major sources of math stress and negativity and how the brain responds to these negative emotions
  • Creating a classroom climate that breaks down stubborn resistance to learning
  • Building confidence–teach students to understand and manage their own math stress
  • Igniting perseverance by busting math myths and stereotypes
  • How to get student “buy-in” to clear the way for sustained interest and effort
  • The reward-pleasure response—creating motivating math experiences
  • Teaching strategies that allow students to construct their own understanding of math– how to help them see math as a practical tool, not as an isolated, irrelevant subject
