“I’m not a math person,” “Math stresses me out,” “I’m not good at Math.” Have you heard any of these sentiments from your students? You aren’t alone, and it doesn’t have to stay this way.

With the nation’s math scores dwindling by the year, it’s clear that our approach to math instruction needs to change.

The science of learning math, an approach that focuses on how students’ brains learn, is backed by decades of research and evidence. In this panel discussion, leading math researchers and practitioners will define what the science of learning math is, why it is so effective, and what this looks like when applied in the classroom.
