Abolishing the phrase "I'm not a math person."
Since Fall 2016, the Center for Research on Equity and Innovation at the High Tech High Graduate School of Education has brought together 17 elementary, middle and high schools from across Southern California to improve student agency and learning outcomes in math, particularly for students from traditionally marginalized groups. We test, refine and spread student-centered classroom practices that build:
Growth Mindset - “I can learn if I put in the effort”
Sense of Belonging - “I am part of a mathematical community”
Purpose/Value - “I feel intellectually engaged and challenged."
