        Overview: Perseverance in Mathematics

        Reflect on the meaning of perseverance and strategies for teaching it to students in this video from Keep Going! According to expert educators, perseverance is not a characteristic reserved for a special few. It’s something that all mathematics students can develop, practice, and improve.Recognizing that the brain can grow and stretch, teachers must help students understand that when they persevere, they are growing. When they struggle, they are getting smarter and becoming more resourceful mathematical problem solvers.Because students’ ability to persevere is intricately linked to their metacognitive abilities, teachers have to teach students how to reflect and what to reflect on. This video provides context about implementing Common Core Standard #1 for Mathematical Practice: “Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them“ in your classroom practice.
