|September 20 at 8 PM Central|
I promise the chat titles will be more imaginative in the months ahead, but in September we’re taking a hint from August and sticking to the basics. The Raising Kids Who Love Math (or how not to pass your math anxiety on to your kids) #STEMchat will take place on Thursday, September 20 at 8 PM Central (9 Eastern, 6 Pacific).
I’ll be sharing some of our favorite resources from when my boys were younger and a few that are helpful now that they’re in junior high and high school.
The wonderful @JeanneBernish will be one of our “parent-experts.” Though she considers herself a “math-not” she has a son who plans to major in math in college next fall!, so she did something right. Get a leg-up on the chat by reading Jeanne’s recent post on raising a mathematician.
Updated 9/10 to add: I’m pleased to announce that @MissLori, mom, blogger, and entertainer (not just to her kids who are not in school right now due the the Chicago Teacher’s union strike) will also be joining us on the panel.
The rest of the panel is still coming together (if you or someone you know is a math educator perfect for this chat, please drop me a note), but I wanted to get the date and time out there.
If there’s a question you’d like to see addressed during the chat, leave it in the comments below.
As this cute video demonstrates, if we want to raise kids who love math we’ve got to provide them with support. The right support.
