Students Can Develop a Growth Mindset:
With + Math = I Can

Have you seen the “With Math I Can…” video? “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? “With Math I Can…” is a program 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.
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 our students have the
right mindset to reach their full potential.
