    This is a listing of the four books written by Jo Boaler on mathematics education. One book is focused on middle school, one on elementary school and two that work for all levels. All four books are focused on ideas that can change the way we teach mathematics and therefor the way students learn mathematics.

    Jo's class on how to learn math is inspirational and interactive. Students engage with videos, surveys, and short repsonse "quizes" that require students to think about math. Both of my children took this class as middle school students and found that it gave them a new perspective on math. For teachers and parents, the course gives suggestions on how to engage and excite students around the topic of mathematics. When I took this class, it gave me many new ideas about how to teach.
