Is loving math an oxymoron for you? It is for so many of us, including, at times, me. But Allison Dillard and Nicole Thompson are in the studio this week to discuss how math is not only a skill but a mindset for how we teach our children about life.

In their new journal, the Love Math Journal, they share practical affirmations, prompts, and affirmations to help create a strong growth mindset in our children. It is a guide to help parents and teachers navigate the challenges children face daily while also developing a love of math. You won’t want to miss this important episode.
