A student in a remedial class who couldn't count by twos is now in an academic program a year ahead of her grade level. An entire Grade 3 class, including so-called slow learners, scores over 90% on a Grade 6-7 math test. These are just two of mathematician John Mighton's many success stories since he started JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies), a not-for-profit organization providing free math tutoring for elementary-level students from low income homes. In The Myth of Ability John Mighton tells JUMP's fascinating story and explains its teaching method with lots of simple examples.Subject(s): Mathematics--Study and teaching (Elementary) | Mighton, John, 1957- | Mathematical ability | Underachievers | Children with social disabilities--EducationOriginal Publisher: [S.l.], House of Anansi Press IncLanguage(s): English
