    Good at math: Often more exposure to math, generally more fluent, strong conceptual understanding, confident in ability, not necessarily deterred by a wrong answer, can keep rules/tricks straight in their head over time

    Poor: Lack confidence in math, assume they won’t understand, low conceptual understanding, helpless hand raisers, eventually start to confuse rules/tricks, poor numeracy

    Both: Like validation, similar experiences in life, want to do well, can have good relationship w/ teacher regardless of opinion of math, can be afraid to take risk, can be teacher centered, know rules and tricks they don’t understand, worry that others may judge them (middle school)
