We are in the midst of a revolution, in the science of the brain and learning. New knowledge from brain science is showing a clear path for mathematics learning, that is both exciting and inspiring for teachers. In recent years scientific studies have also demonstrated that student and teacher 'mindsets' have a profound impact on learning. So what does mathematics teaching look like when it takes account of brain science and mindset research? It is open, creative, visual and it encourages brain connections through multi-modal representations of knowledge. In this session we will think about ways to teach mindset mathematics, K-16, and look at videos of students who have learned in these ways. We will consider what mathematics can be and look like when it is open, creative and beautiful.
