"How to Learn Math is a free self-paced class for learners of all levels of mathematics. It combines really important information on the brain and learning with new evidence on the best ways to approach and learn math effectively. Many people have had negative experiences with math, and end up disliking math or failing. This class will give learners of math the information they need to become powerful math learners, it will correct any misconceptions they have about what math is, and it will teach them about their own potential to succeed and the strategies needed to approach math effectively. If you have had past negative experiences with math this will help change your relationship to one that is positive and powerful."

"This site is a collaborative resource where educators can discover new assessment practices, as well as ideas for refining their current systems or processes. This resource is for educators committed to ensuring student success through best assessment practices. Get expert insight into today’s most pressing challenges and most innovative ideas."
