Therefore, we as educators need to consider that some of our students may have a fixed mindset and do not believe they are smart or ever will be. We need to teach those students to understand that they can indeed be as intelligent as any other person in this world. When we come up with our curriculum we need to consider that students may struggle, but that we have to help them persevere in order to develop that growth mindset. For some reason, it seems that individuals have a fixed mindset about math more than any other subject. I often hear people say, “I’m just not a math person.” Boaler’s philosophy is aligned with what I believe in education. I strive to teach my students to have a growth mindset so that they can all be successful individuals in whatever field they decide to pursue.
