Math teachers in grades 6-12 often deal with students who have a fixed mindset about math; "I'm not good at math" or "I don't 'do' math" are common perspectives among many middle and high school students. In this course, teachers demonstrate practical, classroom-proven strategies and techniques to change students' attitudes about math and greatly enhance their understanding of key mathematical concepts. These strategies are effective with students in all levels of math courses in grades 6-12.
