Assignment:

Happy Monday 7th Grade.

This week we will take a step back from solving math problems and strengthen our growth mindsets. It is said “In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.” At least once you have heard someone say “I suck in math” or “I’m not a math person”. But that is not a fact, it is a mindset that can be changed. After reading the articleThe Myth of “I’m Bad at Math” you will answer the following questions. 

Please provide minimum of 3-5 sentences to answer each question.

  • What are the major points mentioned in the article?
  • What is your opinion on the article? 
  • Do you believe the myth is true or false?

Complete this assignment by logging into Google Classroom where you have a document attached to this assignment with your name. It will help to read the article and take notes on key points, do not be afraid to read the article more than once before answering the questions.
