The myth of ability : nurturing mathematical talent in every child by John Mighton( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 683 libraries worldwide
"Parents whose children are struggling with math will welcome this anecdotal account of a charitable tutoring program called JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies) founded by Canadian author Mighton and currently serving elementary-level students in the Toronto area. Taking an upbeat approach, Mighton argues that we're all born capable of learning anything"--Publishers Weekly
The little years by John Mighton( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 212 libraries worldwide
"Kate possesses the makings of a gifted mathematician with an enthusiasm for exploring the mysteries of space and time. But this is the 1950s and women are routinely laughed out of scientific circles. Besides, every family has its star, and Kate's brother already holds that distinction. Hindered by prejudices against women, Kate is confined to a life of unfulfilling jobs, leading her to become bitter and unhappy. The Little Years confronts the impact of chauvinism and explores the nature of fame, the value of art, and the passing of time." -- P. 4 of cover
The end of ignorance : multiplying our human potential by John Mighton( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 183 libraries worldwide
A revolutionary call for a new understanding of how people learn. The End of Ignorance conceives of a world in which no child is left behind ' a world based on the assumption that each child has the potential to be successful in every subject. John Mighton argues that by recognizing the barriers that we have experienced in our own educational development, by identifying the moment that we became disenchanted with a certain subject and forever closed ourselves off to it, we will be able to eliminate these same barriers from standing in the way of our children. A passionate examination of our present education system, The End of Ignorance shows how we all can work together to reinvent the way that we are taught. John Mighton, the author of The Myth of Ability, is the founder of JUMP Math, a system of learning based on the fostering of emergent intelligence. The program has proved so successful an entire class of Grade 3 students, including so-called slow learners, scored over 90% on a Grade 6 math test. A group of British children who had effectively been written off as too unruly responded so enthusiastically and had such impressive results using the JUMP method that the school board has adopted the program. Inspired by the work he has done with thousands of students, Mighton shows us why we must not underestimate how much ground can be covered one small step at a time, and challenges us to re-examine the assumptions underlying current educational theory. He pays attention to how kids pay attention, chronicles what captures their imaginations, and explains why their sense of self-confidence and ability to focus are as important to their academic success at school as the content of their lessons.

Half life by John Mighton( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
"Two nursing home residents, both in their 80s, meet and fall in love, rekindling what might have been a wartime romance. Had they previously met somewhere else under different circumstances? Why is their love so troubling for their children? Indeed, the light at dusk is sometimes warmer and more enveloping than that of the midday sun. Characters navigate between being and appearance, between cowardice and dissoluteness."--Jacket

"A Short History of Night charts the strange origins of contemporary science through two of the Renaissance's most unusual figures - mercurial, ambitious Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and meticulous, idealistic geometrician and Christian mystic Kepler. As religious wars and witch hunts rage outside the castle walls, an unlikely band of alchemists and astrologers vie to unlock the secrets of the cosmos. Based loosely on the life of 16th-century astronomer, astrologer and mathematician Johannes Kepler, the play draws disturbing parallels between mediaeval and modern thought."--BOOK JACKET
