    By Cathy L. Seeley

    For students, becoming mathematical thinkers and problem solvers is an essential first step to achieving STEM success. In this brief but thought-provoking look at mathematics teaching, former NCTM president Cathy L. Seeley considers what it takes for each teacher to help every student become a mathematical thinker and problem solver. Seeley, a highly regarded author and experienced math educator, explains her approach while she skillfully accomplishes the following:

    • Challenges old ideas about teaching math
    • Offers a compelling rationale to focus on mathematical thinking and problem solving
    • Emphasizes the importance of a growth mindset about mathematical ability and achievement for students and teachers alike
    • Highlights the potential of professional learning communities as powerful tools for learning how to be more effective in helping students gain the mathematical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and habits of mind they need for living and working in the 21st century
