Students Can Develop a Growth Mindset:
With + Math = I Can
“With Math I Can…” is a movement dedicated to changing society’s approach and attitude towards math so all students can reach their full potential. It is our hope that our community of students and parents will join the movement by taking the pledge to stop saying, “I’m not good at math.”
Here is a short description about the program:
Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m not good at math,” or “I’m just not a math person?” Maybe you have said these words yourself? The “With Math I Can…” program is designed to combat the damaging idea in our society that, “Some people just aren’t math people” by reframing math attitudes using growth mindset research and by focusing on all the thing kids can do with math.
During the month of January, each classroom will have an opportunity to participate in a growth mindset discussion and activity that includes taking the online pledge to persevere as mathematicians and learners!
You can support your child and join the movement in these four steps:
1. Watch the video with your child at www.withmathican.org
2. Ask your child, “How do you feel about math?” Discuss ways you can both improve your mindset
3. Visit the resources page to learn strategies to bring growth mindset to your home
4. Share with others who should join the movement
Thank you for doing your part to ensure all students have the right mindset to reach their full potential.
