Far too often at the beginning of the semester, we hear a common phrase: "I've never been good at math." For today's students — many of whom are returning to the classroom after a year of remote learning — their wariness of math may be multiplied. The addition of corequisite courses can exacerbate math anxiety further for students who may need extra support but find themselves in a college-level course. In this webinar, we'll explore the benefits of incorporating a growth mindset to have a positive impact on student anxiety. We'll discuss strategies to encourage a growth mindset in students, tools that can help accomplish this, and the messages we should and should not be sending our students.
