Learning how to learn Barbara Oakley

"Engineering professor Barbara Oakley is co-teaching one of the world's largest online classes, "Learning How to Learn", https://www.coursera.org/course/learning. She know firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. Dr. Oakley flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the U.S. Army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a new found determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life."
