nytimes.com
  • Ph.D. candidate in mathematics from the MIT proposes a new approach for math teachers - learn to inspire kids as football coaches do.
  • Nobody expects math teachers to even tell kids about the brightest minds in math history, let alone inspire them to reach similar goals.
  • Whereas a growing body of research is proving that students need more than a great study plan - they need passionate teachers, a sense of purpose, and support.
  • The author suggests that both students and teachers could benefit from this new approach.
