Abstract

Mathematics is a difficult subject for many students, and being able to persevere after a mistake or failure is a crucial skill for student success in this discipline. Students with a growth mindset tend to be resilient and are more likely to persevere after a setback or failure in comparison to those with a fixed mindset. This project examines the relationship between a student’s mindset and their academic achievement in mathematics. A series of lessons utilizing strategies to promote a growth mindset will be presented. Implications of the findings to math teachers and students will be discussed.
