Adopt a Growth Mindset (from TVO Parents)

Growth Mindset is a simple but powerful idea that was discovered by Stanford University researcher Carol Dweck. In a growth mindset, the idea is that most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work— brains and talent are just the starting point. This view is said to create a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.

In education, experts are praising Growth Mindset, particularly when it comes to teaching Mathematics. It offers an approach to teaching and learning Mathematics in which a child's mindset is more important than initial ability when it comes to Math success. This eliminates the "I'm just not good at math" frame of mind, and helps students to focus on improving in Math through hard work and dedication.
