The inner workings of the middle school math mind
The middle school mind is…different.
As 13-year-old Logan LaPlante described in his Ted Talk Hack Schooling Makes Me Happy, “Neuroscientists say that the teenage brain is pretty weird: our prefrontal cortex is underdeveloped, but we actually have more neurons than adults, which is why we can be so creative, and impulsive, and get bummed out.” Truer words were never spoken around this subject.
To reach and teach the middle school math mind, understanding its inner workings and leveraging current best practices just makes sense. Our infographic provides some answers to who middle school students are, how they learn, and classroom strategies to make sure they stay engaged at this extremely critical time in their learning lives.
