Mindset Maths

Mindset Maths is an approach to Maths teaching and learning by Professor Jo Boaler from Stanford University. The three key ideas around Mindset Maths are:

  • Anyone can learn Maths to high levels
  • Mistakes and struggle are good for brain growth and brain strengthening
  • Visual mathematics helps brain connections and is really important for students’ learning of mathematics

Living Faith has developed a Maths program that combines Mindset Maths and project-based learning within an Australian Curriculum context. Our students are explicitly taught problem-solving strategies and Maths content through interesting projects that combine Maths with Science, Digital and Design Technology. Students experience number talks designed to develop their number sense and number facts.
