Chapter 9 is basically a recap of what was discussed throughout the book. In this chapter, Boaler discussed ways for parents to make a difference in mathematics teaching and learning. This chapter also listed other books about teaching math for parents and elementary teachers to read.

This chapter and book and general were helpful to me and made me realize there are several different ways a teacher can teach math. It also taught me that the traditional way of teaching math is not necessarily the way to go if I want my students to be successful. Hopefully, this book will help me become a better elementary teacher and maybe I can use some of these methods discussed in the book in the future.
