Is there any academic subject as universally polarizing or intimidating as math? Probably not. For students, educators, and parents alike, the subject can induce anxiety like no other - and we have the unfortunate data to prove it. But it doesn't have to be this way, and in this episode Dr. Georgie Hart
, reveals an evidence-based path forward. Georgie is the Education Director and Co-Founder of Sparx
, a UK based education company that's spent the last 8 years reimagining the way math is learned and taught in schools, and supports more than a million students and teachers in the UK. Georgie and I talk about what Sparx is doing differently, the very real phenomenon of math anxiety, and how educators and parents can help students develop confidence to thrive in math.
