Abstract

The purpose of this research project is to study the mathematical mindsets of teachers and students. Mathematical Mindset is a study focused on the differences between growth mindset and fixed mindset in math classrooms. To determine the types of mindsets, an online survey for teachers and students was conducted. The teacher survey focuses on whether the classroom environment, mathematical perspective, and valued characteristics in mathematics of the teacher are motivated by a growth or fixed mindset. The student survey examines the student’s attitude towards math. Overall, the study investigates the effects of the growth mindset and fixed mindsets in the classroom and examines the correlation between the mindsets of teachers and students.
