A student in a remedial class who couldn't count by twos is now in an academic program a year ahead of her grade level. An entire Grade 3 class, including so-called slow learners, scores over 90% on a Grade 6-7 math test. These are just two of mathematician John Mighton's many success stories since he started JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies), a not-for-profit organization providing free math tutoring for elementary-level students from low income homes.

In The Myth of Ability John Mighton tells JUMP's fascinating story and explains its teaching method with lots of simple examples.

Softcover non-fiction book, 224 pages.

The skills are organized in 4 sections: Fundamentals, Skating Techniques, Stick Work, and Dekeing and Deception. As the reader progresses through a chapter, the level of difficulty of each skill increases, ultimately covering every fundamental move and technique needed for an outstanding and total comprehension of the play. Davidson's progressive-learning approach teaches beginners the proper techniques, hones the skills of intermediate-level players and challenges elite players with the additional skills they need!

Some of the 50 critical skills presented in this eye-opening collection include:

  • Forward stride
  • Backward crossunder
  • Drive and delay
  • Heel-to-heel turns
  • Tight turns
  • Extending your reach
  • Receiving off-target shooting
  • The Forsberg deke
  • The Datsyuk deke

Ron Davidson played on Canada's national team at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980. He has directed hockey camps, schools and clinics in Canada, the U.S. and throughout Europe, and he has directed schools and clinics for the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and Ottawa Senators.
