Math Mindsets, now bundled for savings!
This product contains both of my Math Mindset products -- at a discounted price. With this download, you receive the mindset poster pack, problem-solving sheets for each of the five mindsets, and two versions of the Math Mindset scoring rubric.
I teach my students (second graders) five math mindsets:
1. Look for Multiple Ways to Solve a Problem:
This mindset highlights that there are many different ways to tackle the same problem and that, by not limiting ourselves to one way of thinking about the problem, we can develop unique approaches to finding a solution.
2. Use Tools and Resources to Help You Solve the Problem:
This mindset reminds students that there are resources in the classroom that they can make use of when problem-solving – including peers, manipulatives, or technology.
3. Stick with the Problem, Even When It Is Difficult:
This mindset prompts students to remember that they can find a solution if they remain tenacious in their problem-solving.
4. Show Your Work So Others Can Understand Your Thinking:
It can be so challenging to get young students to show their work on problems! This mindset reminds them why they should show their work – so that others can understand their thinking and their approach to the problem.
5. Check Your Work to Make Sure Your Answer Makes Sense:
The final math mindset reminds students to avoid the classic mistake of getting so excited about having reached a solution that they forget to check whether or not it makes sense and answers the question being asked.
