The Math Guru Vanessa Vakharia Wants Us To Make Failing Our BFF

Most of the time, math teaches us that there are right and wrong answers. It’s positive to succeed, and it’s negative to fail. But is this attitude leading us to limit what kids feel they can learn? Are we causing anxiety and not adequately preparing our kids to find the positive angles of how you can learn from failure? Vanessa Vakharia uses her strong, Lady Gaga-esque attitude to highlight how we need to move away from “math person” stereotypes. She emphasises how important it is to experience failure on the road to success.
