Surprises in Mind
Many people — in and out of school — find mathematics frustrating, difficult, even impossible. This documentary uncovers a surprise: Mathematical creativity — expressed in art, architecture and music and valued by industry — is built into the brain and can flourish under the right conditions. A remarkable 12-year study following students from first grade through high school demonstrates the brain’s surprising natural abilities for learning math. The study, led by Professor Carolyn Maher of Rutgers University, brought results that are corroborated by new research from leading cognitive psychologists. Discover ways to unlock this natural human gift for mathematics in classrooms, workplaces and homes.
