    Good at math students…

    -memorize algorithms, many times without true understanding

    -confident in their answers

    -want to share thinking with their peers

    Poor at math students…

    -think there is only one way to do math

    -think math is hard and they will never understand it

    -hate math


    -would rather fail than appear stupid in front of their peers

    -want to learn but don’t want to ask questions for fear of feeling “stupid”


    -can learn anything/concept with the right motivation

    -want to do well in front of their peers

    -with the right environment are willing to take risks
