To add to my previous blog-post on “what is the most important thing we learn at University”: the fact that mathematics graduates have learnt to think (as well as learnt to think logically, and critically) and have experience in learning complex difficult new material is one of the main attractions to employers. See this Cambridge Maths Admissions leaflet for some “destinations” information and data on average salaries.
As I have been preparing for the new academic year over the past summer, I have been discovering the concepts of growth mindset and maths mindset mainly through the book “Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students’ Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and Innovative Teaching” by Jo Boaler from Stanford. It is an amazing read and I cannot recommend it highly enough!
The day I finally learn about the “read more” fold! Thank you, Vicky.
