As teachers, we need to support these norms with action. And because we work so often in groups, emphasizing listening, collaboration and compromise, as well as building on each other's strengths will only enhance group work.
The rest of this chapter has tons of ideas for and tasks to reinforce having a mathematical mindset. As explained in Chapter 5, traditional math problems can be opened up and turned into an opportunity for learning. I'm so excited to develop some tasks that will challenge, encourage, and inspire math learning!
This book is definitely a keeper, and I hope you've learned as much from Dr. Boaler as I have! Be sure to join our Mathematical Mindsets Facebook group, so we can continue this discussion, as well as cheer each other on!
