            Join popular television presenter Johnny Ball as he explores the history of maths and measuring and shows why it is still a magical way to find out how everything works today. All about Maths helps make maths magically simple, from pi, the amazing number that unlocks the secret o...f circles and spheres, to perfect proportions - did you know Leonardo da Vinci figured out that a person's ear is one-third the length of their face? Along the way, you'll meet some of the most brilliant mathematical thinkers from history who have used numbers to make sense of the world. Discover how Pythagorus came upon his famous theorem, and how Galileo the Great became the father of clocks. The fun design presents weird and wonderful facts that most maths books leave out, such as the origin of the number googol and what Mickey Mouse has in common with a computer mouse. With puzzles to solve, conundrums to crack, and incredible tricks to show friends, Johnny Ball will show you just how magical the world of maths can be.

            Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling t...asks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the first-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation. During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same message-that they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that: There is no such thing as a math person - anyone can learn mathematics to high levels. Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth. Speed is unimportant in mathematics. Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics. With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.
