Look deeper into the Growth Mindset to focus on developing a mathematical mindset for your students. Learn about the power of mistakes and productive struggle and the myth of the “math person”. Look at some rich mathematical tasks and think about ways to improve the tasks you are giving students.

Workshop Objectives:
Explore answers to the following questions:

  • How do I foster a mathematical mindset?
  • How do I structure mathematical tasks to promote mathematical mindset?
  • How can I capitalize on the mistakes students make?
  • How can I encourage students to see the beauty and creativity in mathematics? 

Who should attend?
 Administrators, teacher leaders, classroom teachers and school-based teams


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
