Week of Inspirational Math

The Week of Inspirational Math was developed by Jo Boaler (Growth Mindsets) and her team at Stanford University and can be found on the youcubed website (YouCubed).   You will need to register (free) on the YouCubed site in order to access the material.  The purpose of the Week of Inspirational Math includes:

  • Inspiring students through “open and creative math”, and
  • Teaching students important growth mindset messages that will help them feel confident about math, persist with open and difficult problems, and embrace mistakes and challenges. 

YouCubed has chosen different tasks for students to see math as a broad, interesting and visual subject that involves deep thinking.  All tasks are accessible to all students and they extend to high levels.

The first Week of Inspirational Math was in 2015.  Since then, the Youcubed team has added three additional weeks.  

Also, please check out Jo Boaler's video on the Importance of Struggle.  (Dramatization by college students)
