What are the characteristics of students in
 The “good at math” group: Generally they take risks, understands that a math question is like a puzzle and take it as a challenge knowing they are able to solve.
 The “poor at math” group: Believes things are more complex than how they actually are, they believe the class examples have nothing to do with what is taught in class and they think the effort is too big to even try
 common amongst any in both of these groups: Humans are curious by nature, all students should feel challenged and motivated when they are asked to solve a task in a way that engages them.
