Reviews
"This book should be read by every parent and educator -- those who love math and, especially, those who think they do not." --Emily Oster, New York Times bestselling author, Cribsheet, and CEO & Founder of ParentData

"Whether you were a math kid or not, your own kid needs to be. What's more, whether you thought of yourself as a math kid or not, you were. Part manifesto, part reflection, part how-to guide---Math Mind will convince you that math is a language anyone can learn when properly taught, and a joy that's never too late or too early to discover." -Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author, Grit, and Professor, University of Pennsylvania

"This brilliant book opens the doors to the future of math education. It is hands down the most engaging and best-researched book on learning math I've ever encountered. Don't miss this masterpiece--the children in your life will thank you as they flourish."--Barbara Oakley, PhD, author of the bestselling A Mind for Numbers and instructor of Coursera's online course favorite Learning How to Learn

"Shalinee Sharma proves that math anxiety stems from how it is taught, not the difficulty of the subject. There is no math gene and anyone can develop a math mind. I will be using this book to teach my son how to solve math problems and to prove that systematic learning is creative and fun! If you love math, read this book! If you're scared of math, definitely read this book!"--Kristy Shen, author of Quit Like a Millionaire

"In this timely and accessible book, Shalinee Sharma challenges not only the way we've been teaching math but also the way we've been conceptualizing it--as the province of a select few. She demonstrates that all kids can be 'math kids, ' enjoying not only a greater chance of success in life but also an appreciation of the beauty of numbers."--Natalie Wexler, author of The Knowledge Gap
