Abstract

As many educators now utilize proficiency-based grading, student achievement it heavily measured according to assessment results. However, achievement in high school mathematics classrooms is seen through other lenses as well. This curriculum project explores multiple factors influencing overall student achievement through study habits. Actions to meet this purpose include the use of metacognitive strategies, motivation, and collaboration. The proposed unit covers Common Core State Standards for trigonometry, and it incorporates planning for teaching students about growth mind-set, neuroplasticity, collaboration, reflection, goal setting, learner-centered tasks, using Interactive Notebooks, and boosting study habits and achievement therein.
