Some people see themselves being horrible at math but they never wonder why.

A lot of people believe that they are fearful of math because of a lack of skill. The idea that people come into this world with strengths and weaknesses is part of an ideology for the fixed mindset. Those who subscribe to this idea believe that you are born smart and abilities are set in stone. The alternative way of discussing this topic and one that is taking root because of research findings is called the growth mindset. Acquiring a growth mindset is important for succeeding. The growth mindset hypothesizes that we can get better at math or any subject or activities that we are determined to make gains in. Of course is undeniable that from person to person there are differences in natural abilities, it is also true that achievements can accumulate in any area that we put our minds to. Needless to say, kids possessing a growth state of mind have a greater likelihood for success and more open minded about taking on new things.}

Fixed mindset students find themselves constantly having to prove their intelligence in school. It’s a mindset that is unfortunately acquired very early on.

In a recent study, 4 year olds were given the choice of either doing a simple puzzle or taking on a difficult one. Fixed mindset participants selected the easy puzzle simply because they were aware that the gratification of achievement was nearby. Growth mindset children on the other hand went for the challenging puzzle, ready to go after a new task after having mastered the old one.

Having a fixed mindset makes people become risk averse. There is a strong tendency to go for more manageable challenges so that there are more successes. Taking on tougher challenges welcomes more chance that could very well result in a larger number of failures.

Students with a growth mindset see taking on tough task as creating upward momentum for learning and acquiring intelligence. Fixed mindset people when facing challenging situations might look for an easy out for example cheating. Or they might look for someone who performed worse than they have, so that they can console themselves. The growth mindset is undoubtedly the one that lends itself to greater skill acquisition.

Students that are most motivated to learn are learners who do not see themselves as the most intelligent but the ones who relish in building themselves and their skills through ongoing effort.

Nurturing a growth mindset in a child is achieved through praising the young one for trying even when they don’t hit the goal post. This causes them to want to continue working hard. People who are praised for success see only successes, and are not into the trying aspect of things. When they face failure, they miss the lesson that comes with having tried hard.

An example of an institution that has wholeheartedly taken this in is high schools who have stopped giving grades. Instead, they’ve written on their student grade sheets phrases like "not yet," as implicit encouragement. This kind of methodology praises effort over achievement. This is not to say that grades should be eradicated completely.

Lessons illustrating a growth mindset are sprinkled throughout life. I am sure that the reader upon encountering her first failure in their occupation didn’t give up and take flight from the occupation. Mistakes are confronted and lessons are learned and archived. Students have to learn to do the same at an early age no matter the number of disappointing results they get. A period of reflection is critical to get the best out of this process.

Helping students to develop a growth mindset is more than just helping them, it develops the right lens for life. It also creates the road map for how to relish the journey rather than missing the forest for the trees. These types of lessons, taught in youth have the habit of sticking and positively affect everything that a person does, going forward.

One of the reasons that the DOE has been going around the globe taking tips and incorporating them to revamp the school curriculum is due to a need to develop abstract thinking. Much of the new standards are centered around the ability to thought beyond rote, meaning that freestyle problem solving is being emphasized above memorizing rules. A growth mindset approach fits perfectly well in that developing brand new procedures is of greater importance than simply learning and applying a memorized procedure. This emphasis on abstract problem solving would lead to a mind more tailored to out of the box problem solving which is precisely what the objective is.

A good way to develop a growth mindset is by closely working with tutors in Brooklyn New York city.
