    “Good” at math: Embrace the challenge of math, are flexible with their thinking strategies, make sense of the material, often see structure in the content.

    “Bad” at math: Believe that math is something to be memorized, struggle with persistence, believe that they don’t have control over their mathematical success.

    Both groups: Seek validation, would like to succeed, often do not see the beauty of math (even successful students aren’t exposed enough to this in school mathematics).
