By providing that kind of attention to our norms, we increase the chances that students will recognize them and adhere to them.

I hope that helps!

Do they value other competencies in themselves? In others?” These ideals need to be pushed so much in math class, because as a lot of us figure out as you go further in math classes, “real math” (as all of my math professors call it) has nothing to do with calculation; problem solving and critical thinking are more valued in the field and in history. The sooner students realize this, the greater the opportunity for student success.

Again, really loved this post, as I am a big proponent of improving confidence and the feeling of accomplishment in the math classroom.
