Session Title and Description
Reflecting on the Access and Equity Principle in High School Mathematics
Join us as we consider productive and unproductive beliefs with an emphasis on facilitating each and every high school student's development of mathematical processes and practices. Participants will be challenged to consider beliefs that hinder students’ mathematical growth in secondary mathematics courses. The mathematics teaching practices from Principles to Actions will be discussed as a strategy for promoting growth mindsets in students and teachers.
