The sources for these 45 Growth Mindset Tweets are https://www.youcubed.org/ and numerous other sources.
The first purpose of this 45GrowthMindsetTweets project is to write down 45 valuable things (there is nothing special about ’45’) to understand about how we learn and how the brain works. The second purpose is to help everyone learn that they can learn math. This project is meant for students and teachers, so that they can better understand the learning process. The ultimate goal is to help people learn more effectively and confidently.
Included will be information about The Growth Mindset, brainbased learning, a few myths, and tools for successful learning.
Adopting the Growth Mindset has been proven to be helpful for students learning math. My experience, of 30+ years of teaching, bears this out. Everyone can be successful in math.
