The Complaint: Everyone Hates Maths Anyway

………………………………………………………………….

The Cause:

Students absorb maths fear and loathing from peers, siblings, parents and the culture. eg.

From the TwoFatDudes blog.

The Solution:

Invite interesting guest speakers to talk to students. Other subjects do this. Bring in a cool young ex-student and attitudes can change, fast.

Otherwise show them these videos. The first video especially is AWESOME and totally, totally COOL.

Cool Guys talk about Math:

Here are their blogs:
