Like students, many teachers can fall victim to the notion that some people are just not built for math. This mindset could be hindering both you and your students.
Learn to empower yourself and your students to be confident and capable in math instruction and math learning with the following resources and tools.
Developing Critical Math Skills in Students
Both cognitive and meta-cognitive math skills (like problem solving) and social and emotional learning skills (like collaboration) are essential for students to excel in math. Students should not only be able to add and subtract, but should also be able to communicate their thought process and develop a growth mindset.
With ongoing changes to the math curriculum and frameworks, teachers, like students, may also need to build confidence in math. So it’s important to rethink and reevaluate your math lessons. Shifting your math instructional mindset can greatly affect student performance, leading to improved math skills. Studies show that when teachers reexamine their perceptions of ability and adopt a growth mindset, their students see an improvement in their attitudes towards math.
