Research shows a strong connection between students’ attitudes toward math, their math achievement, and their potential for future success. Yet nearly half of our K–12 students believe they’re not good at math, and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) shows that the majority of students struggle with math proficiency.
How can we get all learners on the path to math success? Attend this research-based edWebinar for practical tips for changing students’ mindsets—and for helping them achieve math proficiency milestones at each phase of their schooling. You’ll also explore:
- The critical role of foundational math skills in students’ success
- Proven strategies for sustaining positive mindsets, engagement, and motivation
- Ways to effectively scaffold math practice in elementary, middle, and high school
- The surprising impact of teacher mindset on students’ math achievement
This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, assessment and curriculum directors and coordinators, math directors and coordinators, and Title I directors and coordinators. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
