Join this edWebinar to discover the unexpected joy in mathematics. We’ll dive into the psychology of enjoyment and its critical role in math education. This session will reveal how true enjoyment, beyond superficial fun, can significantly enhance students’ learning experiences.

The goals and learning objectives of this session include:

  • Decode the science of what makes learning math enjoyable
  • Learn to design math lessons that captivate and engage
  • Harness joy to deepen students’ conceptual understanding

In this edWebinar, attendees will explore strategies for supporting educators in creating math lessons that resonate with students, leading to improved educational outcomes. This edWebinar provides insights into fostering an environment where joy is critical to the learning process, encouraging a schoolwide culture that values and enhances students’ mathematical journeys.

This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK through middle school leaders and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

About the Presenter

Brandon Smith is the Lead Mathematician and Product Director at MIND Education, where he creates experiential learning programs for people of all ages, both in and out of the classroom—including two that are patent pending. Over the past several years, he has focused on developing innovative projects to close what he calls the math “experience gap,” where children have insufficient exposure to math in their daily lives. These projects include interactive exhibits and games for math fairs, camps, and family math nights. Early in his career at MIND, he designed mathematical requirements for the game-based ST Math® software and led the national rollout of the sixth-grade ST Math curriculum. Brandon co-authored a paper in Cognitive Science Research Principles and Implications and has written for the Huffington Post and presented at ISTE. Brandon has a bachelor’s in math and two master’s degrees in pure and applied mathematics.
