“Mathematical Mindsets”  https://www.youcubed.org/mathematical-mindsets/by Jo Boaler

This book and the above referenced website have helped me to open up my math class to exploration, productive struggle, and the math process versus just finding an answer.  The opportunity for students to discuss and explore math without pre-taught methods for solving problems allows them to develop their mathematical thinking and mindsets.  The article below from the NY Times does a very nice job referencing the importance of this book!
