How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?

MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.

A great course to improve learner's relationship with math. I will recommend it to anyone who struggles with math for them to change their view and perspective about mathematics (and hopefully they will start loving math).

I never imagined that maths could be so fun!! Incredible course, it opened my eyes in many ways. I discovered new ways of learning/teaching maths, perfect for teachers and parents.

This course is kind of a mini-MOOC. I completed it in a day with ease. There are virtually no exercises or assignments but only short video lectures.

That being said, I think that a student will probably pick up some beneficial ideas from this course. This course is quite similar to the Learning How To Learn MOOC provided by Barbara Oakley. It highlights the importance of number flexibility, thinking about the big picture, collaborative learning, using mathematical reasoning, looking for patterns and preferring understanding over memorization. Some of the traditional myths regarding math are also said to wrong. However, I didn't like the frivolity in this course and the poor presentation of evidence by the student instructors.

Great class, very good ideas for gaining confidence in your abilities. Points out that deep understanding of the concepts in math is far more valuable than just memorizing complicated formulas. Very well done!

It is a course with fun that includes lots of real cases from our daily life and many examples that even also shows that there are few people around you that have similar views or fears against Math

Very interesting, more of a short psychology course, to motivate you to learn. It basically says you can do/learn anything if you try hard enough.
