    1. Most of the book reads as an infomercial for the JUMP math program While I like his approach ideas, can you blame him for promoting it Some cool ideas for promoting scaffolding in math, some neat stories on success challenges.The last chapter was completely different than the rest as it read like a manifesto for the challenges society faces and took away from the flow of the rest of the book It was ok.

    2. Mighton s view on the interdependence of abstract and concrete thought in children and its applications are fascinating.

    3. This is a thought provoking book, primarily about elementary math education Mighton is the founder of the JUMP math program, which started as a tutoring program but has now been used as the math curriculum in some schools Mighton elaborates on the philosophy behind JUMP his starting point is the belief that every child can do math and its main components He focuses a great deal on the importance of confidence and attention children can only math by devoting attention to it, and they will only be [...]

    4. Well, this was definitely of a book than the Myth of Ability, but I m not sure it benefited from the extra length I liked that it was much polished and had some research, but it was still mostly anecdotal I personally agreed with a lot of his logic, but I can see how it wouldn t be very convincing.To read Understanding and Remembering Number FactsMathematics and NatureMathematics and SportsMathematics and Secret CodesMathematics and ArtApplications and Misapplications of Cognitive Psychology t [...]

    5. This book is about educational theory, commenting on how we, and kids specifically, can learn almost anything The book is supposed to be about learning in general, but it goes in detail about the JUMP math program, and as this was writtne by the creator of this program, it is no surprise, but he failed to give many examples of outside uses of his arguments.Either way, I thought his points were good, and it actually got me excited about teaching math to my kids one day His principles are based on [...]

    6. This book reads like the author was insulted when other educators weren t wowed by his teaching approach It would have benefited from a strong editor who would have cut the repetition of the same anecdotes and most likely have cut the length by at least a 1 3rd Mighton does have good things to say, but his manner of doing so is annoying than enlightening.

    7. While fairly interesting, this book seems to be an ad for the author s jump system Some of the examples provided were interesting, if only the author could get off selling himself long enough to say something substantial Fairly light reading.

    8. This book explains why he believes his JUMP math program works for kids to learn math Seems to be a successful model for low income schools with lesser funding and or higher teacher turnover Worth looking into in those cases.
