Mistakes as Learning Opportunities
The courses encourage students to view mistakes as a natural part of problem solving and as opportunities to learn. Additionally, the course guides enhance self-monitoring skills and instill a positive attitude even, and importantly, when mistakes are made. Such support allows students to adopt constructive behaviours and positive attitudes towards math.
Our courses are designed to spark curiosity and motivate students in their own learning. We believe that if the teaching is relevant to the student, and if we can inspire confidence, students will experience success in the future. To this end, we provide students with opportunities to apply newly acquired skills in meaningful ways, foster feelings of accomplishment to boost confidence, and promote feelings of equity among students.
