ICTM is proud to co-sponsor the 2015 Midwest Mathematics Meeting of the Minds (M4) Conference
an invitation-only event to be held Friday, March 6, 2015 at DMACC.

FFA Enrichment Center - 1055 SW Prairie Trail Dr., Ankeny, IA 50028

Focus of the conference:  The Mindset Revolution: Teaching for a Growth Mindset with Jo Boaler

Carol Dweck's work on mindsets has become a high priority for many schools. Dweck found that when students move from a fixed mindset (believing that ability is fixed and being good at math is a "gift") to a growth mindset (believing that smartness grows with hard work), their learning improves significantly.  Mindset beliefs are hugely significant for mathematics learners and the opportunities for students to develop a growth mindset are particularly important in the pursuit of equity and social justice. In this presentation I will set out the ways mathematics teachers, of any grade level, can teach for a growth mindset. We will look at and consider pedagogical structures, mathematics tasks, assessment and grading policies, grouping arrangements, encouragement and praise.
