“good” at math: motivated, participate in discussions/lessons, persevere, can see many ways to do things (which is why I up it in quotes: if they are good at math, they see many ways to solve problems; I have some students who will earn an A, but do so by following a certain step sequence each time and don’t see alternate solution patterns) so maybe a better term would be “Flexible Thinker”
“bad” at math: not always motivated, do not participate, trouble making connections, tend to be rule followers; just looking for the one way they were shown a particular problem
Common: capable, seek approval
